signed limited edition C-print/ edition of 5

Iain Nicholls is an artist based in Yorkshire who works in Painting and Virtual Reality. These paintings came out of ideas and conversations with Alison Gill around their collaboration Experiments in a Virtual Double World, specifically the fluid dynamics in the video game Portal2, the Great Wall of China as a template to base a virtual world around, and the mysterious HAARP antenna installation in Alaska. Hopefully though each painting is more than the sum of its parts and is a thing in itself, a result of the feedback loop of subject, thought and painting.
