NICK MOORE: DARKLIGHT
18 January 2014, 10:00 – 22 February 2014
This exhibition Darklight presents an ongoing series of large multi-panelled paintings on canvas by Bristol painter Nick Moore. They are an exploration of black as energy, working against the stereotypical cast of the colour as depressive or as an endgame. Recently shown at APT Gallery, London, they continue the Dark Intervals series from 2007, and are rooted in spontaneity and improvisation. They combine the elements of chance and deliberation, what in music John Cage talked about as ‘considered improvisation’, and are a direct encounter (or series of encounters) with the material, embodying the sensuousness and physicality of painting as work.
