Nicholas has always been fascinated by the sea. His abstract work is inspired by the relationship between the land and the sea, a symbiosis that undulates from calm to turbulent. “Using colors, shapes, and texture over multiple layers, I explore the comfort and animosity of a place revisited or newly imagined, continuously experimenting with these elements and incorporating a certain emotion as a map spills from mind to canvas,” says Nicholas. He approaches each painting with a title or image in mind, and then experiments with layers of paint, scraping and dissolving color until the texture and color feel right.
