Nick was born and raised in London, England. Much of the artwork he produced there was fueled by the banality of everyday spaces, particularly the elevators, lobbies and corridors of tower blocks and public spaces. After completing graduate studies at the Birmingham Art Institute, Nick moved to the U.S in 1999, where he taught at Florida State University for two years before moving to California. His current works reflect on modernist architectural spaces, images of power, class and materialism that represent fears about existence and isolation. His seductive depictions of artificial utopias, create tension and anxiety that remind us of the foreboding doubt that lingers only slightly below the surface of our desires. Nick is a Professor at California State University, Fresno. The modernist architectural spaces within these paintings stand for power, class, materialism and desire. They also contain reflections on existence and isolation. These buildings were initially seen as exemplary examples of high modernist architecture; utilitarian and egalitarian, a social solution. However, the raw concrete ‘Brutalist’ high-rise towers that followed and the cultures encouraged within them, marred the hope of realizing socialist utopian ideologies. Rather those hopes were mutated into something darker and far more sinister. I am exploring the tension and anxiety that separates the utopian from dystopian, that reminds us of a foreboding doubt that hovers only slightly below the surface of our desires.
