'Plight of the Citizens'
Plight of the Citizens is a series of drawings that is inspired by one man’s fascination for phillumeny. They attempt to combine the grittiness of life under a communist regime with the playful accident of collage making. Elements as varied in theme as state institutions and the rustic, the astrological and the pastoral, the domestic and the urban act as backdrops lending narrative to these newly formed works on paper.
Plight of the Citizens is to take place at The POSK Gallery from 31st August to 13th September 2013. There will be a private view on 3rd September 7-9pm. The exhibition will feature the work of Nicholas Vaughan, an artist whose primary discipline is drawing. This he uses to explore his Polish heritage.
POSK’s mission is to promote and encourage access to Polish Culture in all its forms to Poles and non Poles.
Nicholas Vaughan says: ‘This exhibition represents the culmination of a body of work that began 18 months ago whilst I was living in Brodnica, Poland.’
‘I am very pleased to be associated with the POSK Gallery, and to show my work in these culturally relevant surroundings means a lot to me.’
