Nick Goss is a painter, born in Bristol and living and working in London. A graduate of Slade and Royal Academy, Goss’s characteristically subdued, melancholic paintings developed out of an early experimentation with film and video. Within the work, he describes a focus on the detritus of modern life, and in particular, the things that people leave behind and what that says about the people that inhabited those places. Widely exhibited at home and abroad, Goss is at the forefront of the contemporary UK painting scene.

AirSpace Curriculum is a programme of events, talks and workshops organised by AirSpace Gallery in partnership with Staffordshire University which recognises and responds to the need for continuing professional development for artists in Stoke-on-Trent and the West Midlands.

This part of the Curriculum offer is a series of artists’ talks, organised by Staffordshire University and usually available solely to students on their Fine Art BA Course, but now being opened up for any interested artists and members of the public to attend. This offer will be augmented by additional artist talks at AirSpace Gallery.

The programme offers an insight into the professional practices of a number of interesting and varied professional artists and arts practitioners.
