Nicolas Party

11 December 2010 – 6 February 2011

Exhibitions New Work Scotland Programme

Nicolas Party presented a new installation in the gallery and launched DUST a screen-printed publication created in collaboration with Glasgow-based artists Tatham and O'Sullivan. This publication was produced during a residency at Studio Voltaire and was the first in a new series of Sweet Geranium Books.

Nicolas's practice includes painting and drawing as well as exhibition curating for independent spaces. He often frames his own work and the work of others within decorative installations and cross-art form events. Adopting different genres, conventions and artifice, Nicolas interrogates the language of painting and the nature of aesthetic experience. By experimenting with how artworks are experienced and framed, Nicolas redefines established boundaries between history and rationality to produce visual narratives that create new meaning and experience.

New Work Scotland Programme was an initiative launched by Collective in 2000. Through an open call, New Work Scotland Programme identified and supported some of the most promising new artists working in Scotland - providing them with the opportunity to create new work and bring it to the attention of a wider public. The 2010 participants were Jacob Kerray,
Catherine Payton, Nicolas Party
and Shelly Nadashi.

New Writing Scotland grew out of New Work Scotland Programme and was initiated in 2004 in collaboration with Edinburgh College of Art's Centre for Visual and Cultural Studies, to promote creative writing about the visual arts coupled with targeted support to the exhibiting artists - providing them with them with their first artists text.
