Nick Veasey

Né en 1962 au Royaume-Uni, Nick Veasey vit et travaille à Londres.

 

Nick Veasey compte à son actif plus de 4000 objets scannés. Marqué par son expérience en tant que photographe commercial, il poursuit la même logique de surabondance de l'image de nos sociétés modernes. Son œuvre interroge notre regard sur ce qui nous entoure. En utilisant les rayons-X, un procédé « honnête », ses œuvres donnent à voir « les choses telles qu'elles sont vraiment […]. Elles sont le contrepoids des conneries superficielles sur papier glacé. Je suis quelqu'un d'authentique et franc, tout comme mon travail. », affirme-t-il.  Ainsi, plutôt que de créer des images qui suscitent le désir d'être autre, il propose de souligner la structure interne à l'origine des apparences extérieures. Peu importe la forme, la couleur, la texture, notre quotidien est constitué de molécules ; c'est à cet état de fait que Nick Veasey nous confronte à travers une vision tantôt anecdotique, tantôt imposante, mais toujours pleine de mystère.

 

Sacré « Photographe International de l'année 2008 » par I.P.A., ses œuvres sont visibles dans les plus grandes collections internationales, telles le Victoria & Albert muséum de Londres (U.-K.), le musée Pushkin de Moscou (Russie) ou encore, le musée d'art contemporain de Taipei.
