Niki Gandy/ 101 contemporary artists and more... VOL4

Niki Gandy is a Staffordshire-based interdisciplinary artist, fusing elements of film, photography, ambient light and drawing practices in order to conduct meditative inquiries into the human constructs of, and intrinsic links between space, place and time as sensory and highly subjective perceptions.

Inspired by the Zen philosophy of Ichigo Ichie, that one must embrace this very moment, unburdened by experiences of the past or the uncertainties of the future, Gandy’s work commemorates the futility of the human preoccupation with the need to preserve or reclaim time, examining the paradox of the present having already become the past. This concept is underpinned by themes of melancholia and nostalgia in its truest sense, a homesickness for a home (or moment) that no longer exists.
