John Nicol

Statement

During my time on the MFA I have been exploring themes concerning conflict, contradiction, aesthetics and relationships to the natural world. Working predominantly in sculptural installation, drawing and painting I use commonplace materials from costume jewellery and carpets to industrial glue to raise questions about decadence and highlight contradictions within the work and themes involved.
