Conversations with LInes: A Solo Exhibition by NIc Gear

Conversation with Lines: A Solo Exhibition by Nic Gear
3rd—10th June
Opening Night: Friday 2nd June, 18:00-21:00

This June, Surface welcomes back Nic Gear, winner of last year's open, Abstract, and his solo exhibition, Conversations with Lines.

Conversations with Lines explores the relationship between landscape and art, and considers the way we experience and mark those landscapes in which we live, work, and walk. The artwork on display has a direct relationship with the steps taken by Gear in the “edgeland” landscapes of Nottinghamshire, and also refers further afield to the Peak District and Lake District national parks. Using material discovered in the places explored, Gear collates photographic records of walks undertaken, makes handmade oak gall ink, and creates found object collections. These techniques have an intentional quality and explore how past and present generations converse back and forth through our landscapes. Gear’s physical experience of walking and the spiritual essence of place are also interwoven within the work. Threads become suggestions, traces of place, expressing the unseen and our collective impact on earth.

Conversations with Lines opens in the Main Gallery in conjunction with Conversation with Kith in the Project Space. This opens a conversation between both spaces, and between Gear and the Kith Artist Collective, of which Gear is a founding member. As always, there will be a donations bar with ales from local brewery, Pheasantry.
