Nick Bodimeade

tracks, Trails and Tarmac


Paintings, at their best, are experience. The works by Nick Bodimeade comprising Tracks, Trails and Tarmac embody this axiom in the most compelling way. They speak in a resonant poetry of the rush and visual bloom of moving at pace through the world – the inky swell of shadows and the sudden
glare of sunlight, the twisting counterpoint of bends coming up to meet us and the punctuating stab of detail defined….

These paintings explore and extend the thematic that Bodimeade launched in his B Roads exhibition in the Autumn of 2013, based on the sensations of driving through the relentless picturesque of Sussex
lanes. This project, as it turned out, led Bodimeade to rediscover his inner cyclist who has ever since continued the searching trek on‐ and off‐road, around rural Sussex but also further afield – and Bodimeade’s periodic travels have continued to extend across Europe, the United States and Africa).
The strain and dash of pumping road and mountain bike around provides for a rapid, direct and energetic engagement with the landscape, somewhat at odds with the cliché of the artist tethered to an easel before the subject. But this slalom, through the changing aspect of the view, furnishes an
abundant source of glancing images ‐ a well spring of ideas for paintings. So, Bodimeade is driven equally by a voracious visual consumption (the accumulation of glimpse after glimpse) and a powerful appetite for knowing the world bodily (a kind of muscular landscape choreography).
