Rory Nugent’s enclosed fragments represent the elemental beauty of land, sea and sky capturing the abstract serenity and simplicity of nature.He works in oil on canvas, wood & slate.The work reflects the insularity of the artist in the landscape. Each image depicts the landscape as a wild entity in itself, unhumanised, sublime and untamed.
He has shown his work in numerous successful group exhibitions, from Cork Street,
The Barbican Centre & The Royal Academy. Born in England in 1971, Rory trained at the Royal College of Art and he lives and works in Devon.
