Placed in their own little universes, Nic's tiny characters offer viewers an intimacy akin to peering through the windows into a stranger’s life. But within that glimpse, we can recognise ourselves.
This piece uses hand-cut and painted letters and hand-painted and cast balloons and wooden ladders. Plus there are real paint tubes left over from Nic’s studio and hand-painted and dressed bronze figures.
Nic says: “Life is about engaging with the world around us. Being a father to two growing boys has made me question the lessons I need to pass on to them. Life is all about living to your maximum potential, letting love in and spreading it to others – never losing the sparkle in our lives that is dreaming about what can be. I wanted to create a piece that will remind the viewer every day what is important.”
