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.
Nigel is Coordinator and Facilitator at The Regional Print Centre In Wrexham, North Wales the role encompasses administrative duties as well as teaching and technical support. The demanding role often sees Nigel working with new techniques alongside the more traditional processes of printmaking and this engagement can often influence his own work practice.
In 2015 Nigel completed an MA in Fine Art Studio Practice at the University of Central Lancashire, prior to this studied at The University of Chester and Edinburgh College of Art. He worked as an artist producing murals and decorative painting effects for over 25 years before that, travelling across the world. His paintings and prints have been purchased by art lovers in France, Ireland, The USA, the Channel Islands and the UK mainland.
