Drawing on recycled and obsolete technological materials as the grounds for his paintings, London-based artist Nick Gentry creates a conversation between digital and analog processes. Gentry constructs his painting supports out of materials such as 35mm film negatives, VHS cassettes, X-ray prints, and floppy discs. “These objects are no longer in the spotlight,” the artist has said of floppy discs, “but by placing them there for a second it becomes easier to comprehend the speed and extent of the changes that are taking place today.” Gentry often incorporates elements of these materials into his figures. The magnetic circles of floppy discs, for example, often serve as women’s eyes in his portraits.
