Nick Goss

Nick Goss (b. 1981, Bristol, UK) layers personal and collective history on the canvas through scenes of confident accretion and erasure, constructing and reconstructing phenomena that never had physical form. His paintings clearly summon the space of dreams, where time, space and identity slip, but the sense of a journey propels artist and viewer forward. Goss has been the subject of four solo exhibitions at Josh Lilley, along with multiple solo shows at Simon Preston, New York, and Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin. His first institutional survey, “Morley’s Mirror” at Pallant House, Chichester, UK, was accompanied by a catalogue co-published with Koenig Books, London.

Nick Goss lives and works in London.
