Nick Veasey Biography


Nick-Veasey-Portrait1_thumb

 

 

We live in a world obsessed with image. What we look like, what our clothes look like, houses, cars… I
like to counter this obsession with superficial appearance by using x-rays to strip back the layers and
show what it is like under the surface. Often the integral beauty adds intrigue to the familiar. We all
make assumptions based on the external visual aspects of what surrounds us and we are attracted to
people and forms that are aesthetically pleasing. I like to challenge this automatic way that we react to
just physical appearance by highlighting the, often surprising, inner beauty.

This society of ours, consumed as it is by image, is also becoming increasingly controlled by security
and surveillance. Take a flight, or go into a high profile courtroom and your belongings will be x-rayed.
The post arriving in corporations and government departments has often been x-rayed. Security
cameras track our every move. Mobile phone receptions place us at any given time. Information is key
to the fight against, “whatever” we are meant to be fighting against. To create art with equipment and
technology designed to help big brother delve deeper. To use some of that fancy complicated
gadgetry that helps remove the freedom and individuality in our lives, to use that apparatus to create
beauty, brings a smile to my face!

To mix my metaphors, we all know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, that beauty is more than
skin deep. By revealing the inside, the quintessential element of my art speculates upon what the
manufactured and natural world really consists of.
