Fallax Exhibition

Guildford Arts/Clyde and Co. August-October 2011

Jose Nieves is interested in the way the imagination can transform and deceive and also how information can be presented to mislead and misinform.

Nieves’ work is intended to leave the viewer suspended between belief and disbelief. What is true and what is false?

Nieves’ exhibition includes 2 and 3D images relating to the history of a bird, Fallax Bartoniae. It comprises paintings, prints, 3D and found objects relating to its natural history - its habitat, food and appearance - and relating to the Victorian gentleman whose collection these pictures and objects represented.
