Nathan Coley’s work focuses on the environment in which society creates, and the conflicting systems that our communities are structured upon.
Most recently at Jupiter Artland Coley created In Memory, which takes the form of a small family graveyard, the kind to be found in the grounds of many a country house or estate. By forming an enclosure creating a space and place, apart from its surroundings. It echoes previous works that have looked at how buildings are the articulation of beliefs - specifically places of worship In Memory asks us to think about how we mark lives that are passed.
George Bernard Shaw wrote, 'Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will'.
For Coley’s second addition to the collection and gallery exhibition he has created You Imagine What You Desire, an illuminated text which will firstly be exhibited in the Steading Gallery before being permanently re-sited within Jupiter Artland.
