Nick Gentry will be presenting his first solo show at Whisper gallery.
Exhibition dates 16th September – 8th October 2011

Following his successful show in Miami last month, Whisper are delighted to announce their first solo exhibition by Nick Gentry titled DATAFACE. The Exhibition showcases a new body of work by the
British painter. Nick Gentry’s portraits use a combination of obsolete media formats, making a comment on waste culture, life cycles and identity. Using old disks as a canvas, these artefacts are combined to create photo‐fits and identities that may draw connections to the personal information that is then forever locked down underneath the paint.

This has led to an exploration of the ways in which humankind is integrating with technology. As it reaches a tipping point, this new movement is becoming increasingly apparent as an important cultural and social transition of our time. Will humans be forever compatible with our own technology?

Nick Gentry is a British graduate of Central St Martins and has exhibited in the UK, USA and Europe. As part of a generation that grew up surrounded by floppy disks, VHS tapes, Polaroid’s and cassettes, he is inspired by the sociological impact of a new internet culture.
Nick invites you to donate your old floppy disks so that they may continue their life in his new paintings; a fantastic opportunity to reuse and recycle the obsolete within a creative medium and be involved in this exciting young painters future creations.
