Overview

Flowers, cars, buses, a Boeing 777... Nick Veasey skillfully blends art and science through his mastery of X-ray photography.

Nick Veasey's X-ray photographs convey a mysterious, yet very detailed vision, of everyday life objects, skillfully blending art and science. The dangerous radioactive radiation is used in order to produce poetics photographs, letting their inner and universal beauty emerge. Hidden mechanisms of our daily life fascinate Nick Veasey, who criticizes our obsession with image and its omnipresence in our society; his artworks are impressively aesthetic with a touch of irony. “I want to excite people and help them appreciate the things around them in a new way” says Veasey.

 

Thanks to the help of scientists and numerous experiments on every kind of objects, Nick Veasey never ceased to improve his artistic technique. This detailed aesthetic is all the more noticeable that the photographs are edited on Diasec. The X-ray technic brings an acute precision, the dibond and the Plexiglass emphasize the transparency of the whole, which appears as coming off the wall. In the past 13 years, Nick Veasey scanned over 4000 objects, allowing us to “see things as they really are”.
