Robert Fontaine Gallery, located in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District, will showcase new works by London-based artist Nick Gentry in a solo exhibition entitled â€œXChange.â€ The opening reception will be held during Wynwoodâ€™s Second Saturday Art Walk. The exhibit will be on view April 13 through May 4.Â Gentry works with recently discarded technology, such as floppy discs, x-rays, and film negatives, to compose imagined identities through painted portraits. The subject is the actual canvas, as opposed to the person painted onto it, who is merely a representation of the information stored on the technology. â€œItâ€™s a history of the things that happen in a life, collected into one portrait,â€ Gentry says.Â The exhibition explores the idea of privacy, protection, and security through cultivating identity. Gentry observes that today, we go to great lengths to create a digital identity in addition to the actual lives we live. He believes that these online records are only growing in importance and will outlive us.Â The exhibition will showcase a new series of floppy disc portraits, as well as light box portraits, which are created by layering film negatives and x-rays backlit by LED strips. This medium creates not only an emotional history, but a biological one, as well. There will also be installations with surprise elements, further commenting on the idea of privacy and identity.Â During the run of the exhibition, Gentry will be in Miami working from a studio space. Artist interview and high-resolution images available upon request.Â For more information, call 305-397-8530 or email email@example.com.
