Nicholas Permain: Little Moscow

Nicholas Permain, born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, is an artist who primarily works with painting. His work reflects on his own heritage of the North East of England, with individualistic narratives alongside both established and interpretative views of history. This solo show sees a new body of work that contemplates the habitation of ‘living museums.’ He specifically considers the animals that inhabit these sites and the conflict between the sincere care they receive and their identity as museum object.

In this work, Permain considers his own personal relationship to the past, investigating through his paintings the disconnect between contemporary heritage sites and the authentic lived history of a place.
