Zimmer Stewart Gallery at the Mill Studio in July and August
Herd by Nick Bodimeade
From 15 July to 5 August Zimmer Stewart Gallery present Herd by Nick Bodimeade, a solo exhibition of new South Downs and New Zealand landscape paintings featuring grazing cows.
These works can be seen as a natural progression from the artist's Beach and Woodland series of works.
For a long time Nick Bodimeade has explored the concept of herd mentality: people acting together; forming small groups; creating personal space within the formation.
This has mainly, but not exclusively, been in relation to people on a beach and specifically their way they spread themselves on the often limited space available.
It is the same with cows, the group tends to act together. Each individual chooses behaviour in correspondence with others, whether through imitation or as a response to some external force. Although unstructured, there may be two for more animals which are imitated by the bulk of the herd.
The term herd is often also applied metaphorically to human interactions in social psychology.
Alongside the Herd paintings there will also be some of Nick Bodimeade's Windblow, woodland works like the large Diptych shown below.
The Private View for Herd will be on 15 July from 6-8pm, the exhibition will then be open from 10am-5pm Wednesday to Saturday, 11am-4pm and by appointment at other times.
