Footnotes

  • A graduate of renowned London art college Central St. Martins, Nick Gentry's best known works involve the reuse of obsolete technology such as video tapes, cassettes and floppy disks. By reinterpreting the ephemera of technological development which has quickly been surpassed, Gentry raises questions about consumerism, waste culture and identity, highlighting issues surrounding not just our relationship with the technology of the past, but also with that of the future. His painterly style is delicate yet bold, interacting with the hard edges of the plastic and metal ground to create a stunning and unique aesthetic.
