Award winning artist Nigel Milsom holds first exhibition - 16/04/205

Nigel Milsom is discussing the artwork that triggered his interest in bringing strangers together to paint – what he calls the balancing of opposing forces – when he pauses to take stock.

"There's no moral to the story," he says. "I'm not trying to preach anything. I'm just trying to show something that people might relate to."

The painting of two floating figures, based on Bernini's statue Ecstasy of Saint Teresa, was painted shortly after his release from jail last year and is one 29 works by Milsom on display at Juniper Hall in Paddington.
