'Scene from a Contemporary Novel', Nicholas Middleton

Artist Nicholas Middleton came into the Walker last week to give a talk on his painting ‘Scene from a Contemporary Novel‘. The painting is one of the entries in the John Moores 24 exhibition of contemporary painting, running at the Walker until 26 November 2006.

The photorealistic painting is a biennial highlight on feeling listless, whilst code and effect has a report on the talk itself.

In his talk Nicholas discussed inspirations such as Patrick Keiller’s ‘The City of the Future’ exhibition at FACT and Jeff Wall, the photography and digital techniques used in creating the painting and the location near Brick Lane.
