Nick Terry - London

NICK TERRY

In an age where we are inundated with imagery, focusing on minute details is a luxury we rarely indulge in at present. Nick Terry’s watercolours invite us to do just that. These small-scale works demand a visual space far more significant than their size would imply; their highly textured appearance and intricate compositions feel surprisingly unidentifiable yet familiar.

Large rolls of vinyl-saturated papers and application tapes are substrates for Terry’s paintings. These thin, crepe-like papers induce the water-based paints, solutions he makes himself, to amalgamate into creeks, pools, and crevices. The various textures are enhanced by the choice to only employ black and white paints to create them. Terry often edits the scale and dimension of the original surface area he sets to work on, isolating and developing areas of interest, working free from the confines of a predetermined size and composition.

As we experience the paintings in this exhibtion we revel in the limitless possibilities his processes offer. Each painting provides a universe of visual information as unique as our perception.
