New Portraits on Vintage Film Negatives by Nick Gentry
London-based artist Nick Gentry reimagines recently discarded technology as beautiful portraits that explore identity, privacy, and collective history. His show, titled "XChange." at Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami, on view through May 4, consists of a new series of floppy disc portraits, as well as light box portraits, which are created by layering film negatives and x-rays backlit by LED strips. "It's like painting with light," Gentry explains. "This medium creates not only an emotional history, but also a biological one."
