Sam Nicholson curated by Miles Tuddenham & Martin J Tickner - Bring me my papers, bring me my cheese
The first solo show from London based emerging painter Sam Nicholson, “Bring me my papers, bring me my cheese.”, celebrates painting as a powerful tool for story-telling.
Self-describing the works as ‘oversized illustrations for a children’s book for adults, that will not and should not exist’, the pieces are full of energy and gesture that hold the physicality of making as important a medium as the oil paint itself.
This show pulls from the last eight months of Nicholson’s practice, reflecting government restrictions with notebook scribblings and lockdown liftings with paintings of epic scale.
