About

Headdress 47x47 inches X-Ray C-Type print with Diasec frame Limited Edition 4 of 9 X-Ray print of a Native American feathered headdress. Artist Nick Veasey explores the intersection between science and art by creating a unique and detailed work that provides a thought provoking and different perspective on every day objects. Nick Veasey (b. 1962) creates art that shows what it is really like inside. Veasey’s work with radiographic imaging equipment takes the x-ray to another level. Everyday objects are transformed from the banal to the beguiling and the layers and make-up of natural items are shown in fantastic detail. These works are a classic example of the fusion between art and science. In today’s world that is obsessed with ‘image’, superficiality and artifice, Veasey counters such insubstantial diversions by delving inside and discovering what things are really made of. Their context is very relevant in today’s society with the prevalence of surveillance and the use of x-ray technology for security. The artist’s work can be seen as a project that harnesses and exploits modern technology to advance the boundaries of perception and of art. But what sets him apart from other artists is not only the technique. Instead of creating or transforming things, he is exposing something that always existed, objects we think we know but we don’t. Not from the inside out. The work is a dazzling balance of extremes, using lethal radiation to produce results of great lyricism and grace. Veasey’s x-rays penetrate solid matter to render it ghostly and gentle, giving the viewers that precious feeling that they have somehow seen reality afresh with an aspect to life that they have never before experienced. The Victoria and Albert Museum in London have recently added his work to the British National Collection of Photography. Veasey regularly exhibits at fine art galleries the world over. The ethereal and fascinating works have collected a host of International awards.
