  2. Discovering Nick Archer

    British artist Nick Archer’s new paintings are reminiscent of the north European landscape painters such as Pieter Brueghel and Caspar David Friedrich. His painterly process, however, is a very contemporary procedure.

    Essential to his practice, Archer’s creative process results in beautifully painted landscapes full of awe and wonder, with the atmosphere of a dark fairy tale.

    Nick Archer: Lost in Paradise opens on October 15 and runs through November 14, 2014 at London’s Long & Ryle gallery.
