Opening Reception: Thursday November 14th, 6:00-8:00pm
FP3 Gallery is pleased to present Distorted Memories, an exhibition of recent paintings by Nick Ward. Nick’s paintings are often described as realism. However, these paintings stop quite short of – and in some areas just past – photo realism. Instead of capturing visual reality, his portraits attempt to describe his memories – real or imagined – of these subjects. Equal attention is given to long relationships and fleeting glances; actual experiences are treated the same as invented encounters. The portraits combine exaggerated characteristics with occasional use of text or vivid color as a counterpoint to the familiar forms of the human face and body.
