Geoff Diego Litherland: We Will Say Goodbye to Everything
WE WILL Say Goodbye to Everything, a solo show by Geoff Diego Litherland, will be on display at Nancy Victor Gallery from Friday, April 12 to Monday, April 29, 2013.
Litherland is a Mexican born artist based in London and Nottingham. Having spent his early years in Bolivia and Ecuador he moved to England and graduated from Falmouth College of Arts in 2002 with a first class honours degree in Fine Art Painting and completed an MFA at Goldsmiths in 2012.
Throughout his work, Litherland combines traditional genres of painting with the surrealism of science fiction and the fantasia of abstraction. Through paint and carefully guided compositions, parallel worlds are carefully composed and constructed, setting a tone that questions human perception and relationship to nature.
The exhibition shows new spectral octagonal landscape paintings and a map of an uncharted world engraved onto animal skin. The work inhabits a post-apocalyptic world where nature is a mirage, being supported in a very tenuous way, offering a sense of an ecological disaster.
Geoff Diego Litherland is currently an Associate Lecturer in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University.
Times: Monday to Friday 10am – 6pm and Saturdays by appointment.
