September 2015: Nigel Sense - 21st Moments
Footy, businessmen, bouquets and Tinder - Nigel Sense’s collection is a slideshow of ‘21st Moments’. These moments are familiar. Sense places icons of the everyday on display and invites us to rediscover their significance. In his paintings of rose dozens, Sense plays up the passion. In his snapshots of lovers, the passion is undercut. Whether celebratory or subversive, Sense’s take is always playful. This sense of humour sees sporting stars treated as idols and businessmen quitting their jobs. Visually punchy, ‘Modern Moments’ pricks at the beauty and bizarreness of everyday life.
