Long & Ryle in collaboration with Private Public Gallery in Jersey presents Nick Archer's latest exhibition.
In a similar manner Nick Archer uses film and photography as source material for his sublime landscapes which eloquently reflect memory and imagination, mysterious frozen moments of revelation and a sense of dislocation and dystopian drama.
With a depth of vision and a scale of multi-layered meanings Nick Archer’s paintings possess a Lynchian quality that suggests a vision of the world in crisis, a journey at an end. His seemingly enchanted and technically brilliant landscapes are influenced by fairy tales and children’s literature such as Snow White or Alice in Wonderland. The colour and also the power of nature and its sublime qualities are central to the art of Nick Archer.
With a dominant colour in any composition and another colour which reacts against it, the artist is looking for a balance between harmony and discord and for the colour to create an atmosphere of beauty and yet menace.
Nick Archer’s landscapes, which at times focus on a point of interest such as a caravan or abandoned vehicle, are a witness to the vulnerability and isolation of our human condition; the paintings attempt to explore one’s place in the world.
