Featured artist – Nick Gentry

Nick Gentry’s work has appeared over the past two or three years on numerous technology, art and painting websites and blogs – and here we go again. So if you’ve seen his work before… tough sh*t (although you probably loved it anyway and don’t mind another look). If you haven’t seen it before – feast your eyes.

His works utilize old and found floppy disks attached to wooden panels. On these floppy disks he uses oils to create pretty unique portraits. I think the reason I love his work is the use of negative space to create the shape of his subject. Its kind of how I work at the minute, painting whats not there to create something that is.
