New Artist Statement March 2021

Nigel is a visual artist working in North Wales In the UK making paintings and prints. His work evolves from the perception of abstraction, symmetry, system and organisation, while working with these parameters it is a continual challenge to break away from these configurations. The practice and process of making visual work is an organic structure, evolving, questioning and resolving. Working in this way the product is never static, a question or idea is posed and the practice engages this and work comes out of that equation. This means the practice works within a basic range of “tools” but the formula changes resulting in variables of the art made.

In late 2020 the work has returned to the proposition of mark making and his own interpretation of this fundamental act, so using the “tools” perceived in the practice a re-examination of the nucleus of making art is taking place.
