In his most recent body of work, Paul Nugent has considered the idea of presence or semblance of place associated with historical and institutional environments. Using photographic references to paint from, in the making of Obscura series, Nugent draws out elements that hark to obscured aspects within the interior of the infamous 17th century Chapel at Pitié-Salpêtrière, Paris.

Obscura will be accompanied with an essay by Ingrid Lyons that further contextualises the work in terms of its historical and architectural references.The essay will be available at the gallery from September 14th.
