In her famous love letter to the Cairngorms ‘The Living Mountain’ Nan Shepherd describes moments in her relationship to the landscape when “something moves between me and it. Place and mind may interpenetrate until the nature ofboth are altered’. something has been altered here, and we are richer for it.”

–Elizabeth Adams architect
After a successful exhibition at Bermondsey Project Space in London, in partnership with The Good Governance Institute, Tim Nathan brings his large format seascapes home to the town that gave him his inspiration, to Lucy Bell Gallery in St Leonards on Sea.

Tim Nathan is a multi-disciplinarian artist; a skilled bronze founder, director, music videomaker, photographer and designer. He studied in Hastings and Canterbury and has lectured in drawing for over ten years in further education. Whilst being hugely capable in a wide range of creative processes, he perpetually returns to his passion for horses and drawing. He says: “Drawing is a crucial element of makingany work. It informs, it is a tool, it is language, it is a criterion for criticism. Through drawing you can come to terms with subject matter, and as the by-product of that process sometimes make good work.”

During lockdown, Tim suffered an almost total breakdown, he found his road to recovery from taking pictures each day of the sea in his hometown.   “Each photograph in this series is both a meditation on our relationship with the natural world, and a celebration of its dramatic beauty. Popular psychology recommends engaging with something bigger than ourselves in order to heal a fragile mind, and Tim deployed persistence and quiet discipline to record the daily phenomena of the sea. The result is a rich and complex narrative of the undisciplined behaviour of air and water; one in which dark clouds release a veil of rain far from the shore anticipating a storm, a whisp of cloud hovers in an almost clear sky, above a tranquil sea, or a full moon casts a nicotine hue across the dark water. Whilst we recognise the scene, the dramatic sensuality that emerges from each image’s composition and the powerful body of work seen together is less familiar” Gareth Stevens - Journalist

GGI Festival Director Jaco Marais said: “Tim Nathan provides the visual language for something the Good Governance Institute has long understood: that good governance is personal. It’s not just personal for people on boards who are directly involved with governance through their day-to-day activities and responsibilities. Good governance is personal also because every individual has complex needs.


“It is this narrative that is explored by the Flip the Script exhibition and in our Flip the Script festival review. At GGI, we believe in subsidiarity, a long word that simply means bringing decision-making as close to the individual as possible. Our mission is to create a better, fairer world through governance by engaging individuals in their own and collective destiny within society.”
