On May 2nd, 60 Threadneedle Street will host a private view for Nick Rochowski's The Liminal Points Project. The exhibition will feature ten works from the similarly titled book released in November of last year. The Project is a re-exploration of Penn Wood in Buckinghamshire and a journey of disconnection from the day-to-day, back to a vivid childhood fantasy.

Nick's artistic practice involves extensive observation and exploratory research of an historical or changing landscape, built environment, or interior space. Working at dawn, dusk, and night while blending natural and constructed lighting techniques in conjunction with elements from the landscape, the betwixt, his large-scale images lie in a place that is somewhere between realities as if you have stumbled upon a happening. Through repeatedly visiting the same landscape over a period of 3 1/2 years, the scenes represent physical explorations of psychological experiences. There is a power nature holds when one is left alone with it and is something that resonates in all people.

Visually inspired by cinematography of the late 70s and early 90s and writers Katushiro Otomo and J.G. Ballard, The Liminal Points Project collaborates with illustration artist Greg Haynes and the influential music producer Deepsea. The different creative elements combine and respond to the project to form new levels within and around the work.
Nick Rochowski is a photographer of Malaysian, English and Polish descent working largely in the UK and France. A book, produced by Rokov Publishing, accompanies the exhibition, and Nick's photographs and photographic prints are available on Rise Art. The exhibition runs until 3 September 2012.
