A SCOTTISH LANDSCAPE| new work by Nick Sargent
4th August – 7th October 2011 | Mondays to Fridays 9:00am to 5:30pm
Nick Sargent’s new exhibition, entitled ‘A Scottish Land’, explores a number of pertinent issues such as attribution and the notion of originality. The exhibition comprises a number of works but focuses on a large scale, painted and embroidered canvas entitled ‘A Scottish Landscape’.
This site specific piece was inspired by a sepia print generically catalogued as ‘General Scottish View‘ and a faded watercolour entitled ‘A Scottish Landscape, Artist Unknown’’.
Nick Sargent’s work interrogates the often mutually exclusive relationship between fine art and craft and this new exhibition also explores the nature of the ‘picturesque’.
