Exhibition: Patchworks - Mixed Media Paintings by Jim Nind

Thu 10 – Wed 16 May 2018

In recent years Jim’s work has featured both photographs and paintings. Over the last year the two have increasingly overlapped and influenced each other.  The emerging ‘patchwork’ strand to Jim’s work features digitally reworked photographic images which form the ‘patches’ over which Jim works with acrylic paint and other media.

Drawing upon photographs taken in the ‘natural environment’ the work explores the relationship between digitally generated imagery and low-tech forms of painting, blending the two within competing, contrasting, and complementary forms and surfaces. The resulting work explores issues around the ‘made’ and the ‘natural’ and the way they impact each other.
