Matt’s Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition in two parts by Nicola Bealing. Drawing from two connected new bodies of work: Chapter 1 will present works from Dead-man’s Fingers and chapter 2, The Borough.

The Borough is a suite of new paintings by Bealing, completed with the support of The Bryan Robertson Award, which Bealing won in 2021. The series takes its title from George Crabbe’s long poem of the same name. Published in 1810, it describes the inhabitants & institutions of a fictional coastal village through a series of letters.
