An abstract expressionist depiction of the ocean. Soft palette of blues, greens, purple and white. Inspired by a trip the artist took to Oman, where he snorkeled in the reefs off Masara Island in the Arabian Sea. "I wanted to create a piece that encompassed the vastness of our oceans, and a play on how small our own boats and ships are in comparison," says Nicholas.

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.
