Nicolas Party, Inverleith House
Yesterday marked the opening of a brilliant new exhibition at Inverleith House in the Royal Botanic Gardens.
'Nicolas Party's Boys and Pastel is the first major solo exhibition in a UK public gallery by the Swiss artist, who has transformed the formal Georgian interior of Inverleith House into a contemporary ‘gesamtkunstwerk’ with the most expansive installation of his decorative wall paintings to date, spanning every available inch of the seven gallery spaces. The patterned murals act as a framing device and wondrous stage set for a new series of pastel compositions and charcoal drawings, delivered in Party’s unique aesthetic language.'
In short, it's a colour sensation!
