Following an intense and surprising experience with a camera that dropped in his lap at the age of 8, Nick proceeded to obsessively ‘snap’ anything and everything in sight.
He continued dabbling with the lens in his teens, until he picked up a paint brush at college. Suddenly exposed to all art genres, Nick was particularly won over by the works of abstract, cubist and impressionist painters, as his instinct is also for colour, shape, feel and lines.
Craving a more realistic and instant medium through which to express these instincts however, Nick returned to photography.
This love of the realistic, sometimes abstract, and instant had a huge impact on Nick and he was soon under the spell of such photographic greats as Man Ray, Bill Brandt, Ansell Adams and
Henri Cartier-Bresson. Their influence, which naturally flowed over into other areas of creative expression, like the Dada, Bauhaus and modernist movements, still have an impact on his work today.
With such a foundation, Nick loves to create images of very contrasting styles, from true, bold statements to gentle and subtle abstract realism. The one uniting theme in his work however is ‘feel’ and often his pictures have ethereal overtones which his latest work demonstrates perfectly. It’s as if his creativity has not only come full circle but also dovetailed fantastically, to produce a series of flowing colour and feel images that blur the lines between painting and photography. Being a passionate and personal individual, Nick feels that his images are very intimate glimpses into his personality and soul and his ribbon pictures are excellent examples of this.
Nick’s work has been published many times and he is now looking for a wider canvas on which to display his art.
