Exploring the hidden at the Richard Goodall Gallery
Ever wish that you had Superman’s x-ray powers? OK, so it may not be quite the same as zapping them on whenever you wish, but Nick Veasey’s latest exhibition on at the Richard Goodall Gallery promises to give you a taste of the hidden. ‘It’s What’s on the Inside that Counts’ hosts a multitude of x-ray images of objects, exploring their inner workings and secret parts.
Whilst at first glance the images may look rather simple it is not an easy process to create such pieces; many have been painstakingly layered in a collage style out of multiple differing x-rays. Objects run from the everyday pair of knickers to buses and planes, which took industrial x-ray facilities.
Richard Goodall, owner of the Manchester exhibition centre, comments: ‘Veasey’s work has a real relevance in today’s society where there is an obsession with security, and safety through knowledge of what can not be seen…Sometime sinister, sometimes humorous, always evocative, Nick has a growing reputation…we are proud to represent his work here in Manchester for the first time.’
Veasey’s work has been collected worldwide and has exhibited in many well known collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and The Museum of Contemporary Art in San Francisco.
The exhibition at Richard Goodall Gallery will take place from 22nd June- 28th July.
