Chris Nugent

Chris Nugent lives and teaches art in Edinburgh and has been exhibiting throughout the UK and Europe since graduating in 1986, including showing in SSA and RSA. With a clutch of awards since then, he has developed a fluid approach to the interaction of light and colour on the elements of sky, sea and land. His recent work has focussed on cityscapes, working with mixed media to create a multi-layered interpretation of the bustle, energy and dynamic of features and panoramas – adapting this bold style to seascapes and other locations.

“My main subject is the built environment or structures within landscape. For this, I have created a specific working method which I think captures the complex layering of texture, shape and form found in various architectural and urban styles. The work is often heavily surfaced and built up over time using a range of media such as newsprint, textured papers, adhesives, gesso and acrylic paint.”

During the summer of 2015, he and his family visited New York for the first time. Its energy and size, coupled with the art from its world-renowned museums, inspired much of the body of work seen in his solo exhibition at Doubtfire in the Autumn of 2016.
