Still Alive + Mobile
Nick Mount’s work has long represented a symbiosis of contrasting yet complimentary elements. In a contemporary take on the traditional, Still Alive + Mobile comprises a series of new works that are at once energetic and expressive, and intimate and illusive; playful and provocative, and soft and seductive.
In the long-standing tradition of the Still Life, Nick presents a slice of the everyday. Providing endless opportunity to experiment with the arrangement of elements within a composition, the work tells a story of form and finish, texture and tone, technique and intuition. Functional objects and geometric forms are positioned alongside fruits, both real and imagined. A symbolic reminder of our changing environment, the work is also a reminder that the old can be new again.
