‘Ta Nikol,’ is the name of a new art gallery opening in Victoria, Gozo next week. The gallery will initially be exhibiting works by the two creative spirits behind the project, German photographer Lisa Gast and British artist Oliver Cook.
With a unique mix of subjects, both local and international, including landscapes, street scenes, nudes, pin-ups, and even some aviation, military and religious images, it really will be a totally eclectic experience
Lisa and Oliver said that there will be a range of originals and signed prints available, at prices suitable for all pockets.
The gallery will be opening its doors on Monday, the 12th of August, with a small celebration being thrown on the evening of Wednesday, the 14th of August. Both Lisa and Oliver will be on hand in the gallery to meet everyone personally for the week starting 12th August.
Ta Nikol gallery is located at 43 Triq Mons. Guzeppi Farrugia, Victoria It is just a few metres from St. George’s Square and easily identifiable by its traditional red painted arched wooden door and wrought iron sign and lamp.
Lisa Gast is a twenty four year old German photographer who has been living on Gozo for several years. After spending time in various parts of Europe, from Paris, London and Berlin to Mallorca she finally found her perfect home in the beautiful Gozitan village of Xlendi.
When she is not back in Germany paragliding or gliding she can be found finding new angles through which to photograph the breath taking Gozitan landscape. Her photography is typified by an understated, natural flow without contrivance or tension – whether the subject is a landscape or a person.
Oliver Cook is a thirty one year old British artist who has only been living on Gozo for a few months. Oliver studied at the Kent Institute of Art & Design (alumni include artists such as Tracey Emin) in Kent, England. After living and working in both the United Kingdom and the United States he has also settled in the Gozitan village of Xlendi.
Oliver’s creations take a wide variety of forms, from painting and drawing, to photography and even writing (also being a published novelist). His photography and drawings will be most represented at Ta Nikol gallery, with a focus on tasteful female figures.
