Passages of Transformation
25 – 29 October 2022
Nick Malone is a British artist who crosses art forms to create adventures in painting, drawing and writing, often combining traditional and experimental techniques in unforeseen ways to create artwork full of dynamic contrasts.
Initially a writer, Malone decided to become an artist in his thirties, against all advice. Nick Malone’s work has been exhibited across the world, from Japan to the United States, including at the Royal Academy and the Carrousel du Louvre. He has won various awards, including Arts Council England Awards and Fellowship of The Royal Society of Arts. His artwork and artist’s books are represented in a number of collections, including The British Council, Salford Art Gallery, The Royal Society of Arts, Milton Keynes Gallery Archive, The Drawing Room, The University of Wisconsin, BUPA, The RAC and GlaxoSmithKline.
Throughout he explores issues of identity, transformation and change. His art practice has evolved over time, from a hybrid abstraction to his more recent work using collage, text and imagery, providing an iconography of inner fable, archaeology and dream. His roots as a writer, as well as his extensive travels, provide creative material for his work.
