Artist Statement & Biography
I am fascinated by torn bits of paper bearing oily stains, scraps covered in marks of ambiguous origin, and other items that bear hard evidence of the passage of time. My work is inspired by - and occasionally directly incorporates - the worn out colors, mysterious textures, and overlap of layers present in found objects. Some of my prints rely on the interactions between water and water-based inks, while other prints combine the use of traditional etching plates and chine-collé.
Nick has exhibited his work in both galleries and juried art fairs. His prints can be found in the private collections of art enthusiasts across the U.S.
