Nicola Bealing is a painter and printmaker who lives and works in Cornwall. Her recent exhibitions include Capital Crime at Matt’s Gallery, London and Death and Circuses at Kestle Barton, Cornwall  - an exhibition of large-scale work made in response to the archives of the Helston Folk Museum, Cornwall and funded by the Arts Council. Through Bealing’s humorous yet unforgiving gaze, her work often pokes fun at the viewer and the world. Bealing portrays both man and beast as slightly absurd contributing to an effect that is simultaneously intriguing, amusing and mildly unsettling. The series of small oil on wood paintings she will show in Perspective are punchy and irresistible though not for the faint-hearted.
