Brilliant Things To Do in March: Nathan Eastwood | AnOther Magazine

Nathan Eastwood: My England at Sid Motion Gallery, London: March 3 – April 8, 2017

Screen Shot 2017-03-02 at 15.48.38Nathan Eastwood’s paintings come across as snapshots of everyday life in England, because that is exactly how they came to fruition: Eastwood would take photos on a phone and work from these images to create his atmospheric paintings. Scenes in launderettes, a queue at a food bank and a man glancing at a ticket before walking through a doorway all make for remarkable subject matter, many crafted in monochrome and all with immense detail, and viewing that feels at once inclusive and voyeuristic. Sid Motion Gallery is still a young venture, in an area of London undergoing exciting regeneration, rendering Eastwood’s observations of English life especially prescient.

‘The Best Alternative Art Galleries in London’ by the Spanish newspaper, El Iberico

“Only 4 months ago the artistic manager of Photo London, Sid Motion, opened her eponymous gallery in a former betting shop near King’s Cross focused on modern art and photography. However, the place has become a key destination in the contemporary art scene in the capital. The director, of only 28 years old, wants to create a space to show what interests the real artists and make visitors questions asked and discussed. Until November 5th you can attend the show Francesca Longhini and Michelle Conway, where they explore the issue of existence and contemporary life in urban spaces through painting, sculpture and photography.”
