Event Description

Introducing a completely new series of work, British artist Nick Veasey has departed from his familiar x-ray prints. While x-rays are still the mainstay of his art he now introduces more provocative and political messages through the overlaying of icons and symbols.

The symbols or icons are ‘tagged’ or spray painted in colour to the face of the frame which then cast a dropped shadow effect onto the black and white x-ray which is spaced behind the spray painted face of the artworks. This relates to Veasey’s constant reference to superficiality and looking beyond the surface that is prevalent in all his work.

The coloured symbols and icons serve, both metaphorically and physically, as another layer to the artist’s obvious disquiet about society’s obsession with commerciality and superfluous consumerism. The subjects he confronts include our reliance on technology, religion driving society apart, the human and financial cost of war, the democratic right to protest… It’s not all serious comment though, as amongst the political statements there is wit and irony.

Nick Veasey, born 1962 is an artist that uses x-ray technology and potentially dangerous radiation emitting equipment to create art. His work resides in museums and galleries all over the world. Within the last year he has had major retrospective exhibitions at Fotografiska Stockholm, the world’s largest photography museum and at the Seoul Arts Center, South Korea.
