Nick Waplington "A Display of Panic at a Moment of Absolute Certainty" @ These Days Gallery In Los Angeles

These Days and Thomas Solomon Art Advisory present A Display of Panic at a Moment of Absolute Certainty, an exhibition of paintings by Nick Waplington. Over the last thirty years Waplington has developed an extensive body of work marked by eclecticism and juxtaposition. While best known as a photographer, Waplington also works extensively with painting, video, computer-generated imagery, sculpture, and found material.  Over the past year Waplington has been living in Los Angeles, devoting his art practice entirely to painting. This show features a number of large semi-abstract canvases rendering the city’s urban psycho-geography as well as its light and landscape. Once again, his work explores themes of chaos and volatility on a number of levels; in these paintings, Waplington evokes the constantly changing light and weather of Southern California in a time of climate instability, the city’s fragile existence on the edge of the San Andreas fault, and the desperate existence of the many men and women living precarious lives on the fringes of Los Angeles’s prosperity.
