Angela Meleca Gallery

Degrees of Freedom- Nick George

Opening Reception

Thursday April 23rd

5:30-8:30 p.m.

Nick george reception

Angela Meleca Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of photographic works by gallery artist Nick George.
George’s practice centers on photography, both as medium and subject. His upcoming exhibition, Degrees of Freedom, includes two new bodies of work. The first series titled The Weather, features large photographs surrounding the unsolved 1970 bombing of Rodin’s The Thinker at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The second body of work, You need 12 squares., utilizes geometric abstraction through the lens of a perceptual awareness game to question an artist’s capacity to act independently in making their own creative choices. These works consist of unique, large format, silver gelatin paper negatives.
George has a bachelors in Photojournalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia and received his MFA at The Ohio State University in 2014. He lives and works in Columbus, Ohio.
