Tommy Nease at Get This!
Get This! Gallery presents the solo exhibition “Phantasm,” by photographer Tommy Nease. This will be the first show by the artist with GT! The gallery will be publishing a book, Phantasm in conjunction with the exhibition.
Tommy Nease is a young soul who uses his obsession with imagery to unearth deep secrets within his subconscious. Nease’s work lies in a no man’s land between the spiritual polars of light and dark, and he attempts to live his waking life with the same respect. Tommy spends his days primitively traveling the states and abroad. He constantly submerges himself in new surroundings in order to gain inspiration for his photography. Nease’s work shares aesthetic sensibilities with the likes of Man Ray, Roger Ballen and Ryan McGinley.
Nease’s work had been both exhibited and published throughout the United States and Europe including collaborations with: Dazed and Confused magazine (London), Unpublished magazine (Milan), the FOAM museum (Amsterdam), RELIC (Brooklyn), N-SPHERE (Romania), Tell Mum Everything is OK (Paris), among others.
Nease’s solo ventures include “PNEUMA” a book published by Fourteen Nineteen (London) and Other/Other (USA) with an opening release exhibition at the Happy Dog Gallery in Chicago. His first solo exhibition “EXPLOR/ATIONS” (2010) took place at the Black Sheep Gallery in Charlotte. North Carolina.
Nease will give an artist talk at the gallery on Saturday, Dec. 1.
Through Dec. 1.
