Nick Goss at Simon Preston Gallery
Bluing, the title of Nick Goss' exhibition at Simon Preston stems from a family laundry business. James Cahill explains Goss's focus on places in Art in America
Goss’s layered yet evanescent images transform ordinary places—cafés, a launderette, the social clubs frequented by the local Turkish community—into psychological spaces where blanks are as common as physical presences.Bluing refers to a laundering technique that adds a trace of blue dye to enhance the appearance of fabrics.
