Artist statement January 2018


Nigel is a visual artist working in North Wales in the UK making paintings and prints, his work is mainly associated with the flatness of paper and canvas, but has a developing interest in the sculptural forms of these disciplines and explores the ideas of flatness, surface and formin relation to the printed/painted image.

An emerging theme in the work is physical and perceived distortion, by usingthe simplicity and duplicity of line he investigates the balance and unity of symmetry, colour and spatial aesthetics promptinga manipulation of image using moiré distortion, interference pattern and spatial index. Although the complexity of these subjects could infer science and mathematical research Nigel’s interest remains in the visual perception of an artist eye.

“I like my art to play with our visual senses, to challenge our experience of looking, to help the viewer question what they see in a piece of art.”
