NICK PFAFF MEET HIM MONDAY, AUGUST 29 6:00 WILTON LIBRARY ASSOCIATION
I am a mixed media artist and community arts organizer from New Haven, CT. Over the past months I have been creating photographic studies using instant film cameras with altered lenses. I have more recently begun translating these photographs into large scale mixed media drawings using a variety of materials. I do not currently have a workspace so this residency would afford me the time and space needed to develop this body of work. Over the course of the residency I will create 8-10 large scale drawings along with photographic studies using instant film.
I blend a variety of water-based media to create hypnotic and textured glowing natural forms. My process involves the use of psychedelic saturated colors that embellish and contrast the formal subject. These large scale works are both graphic and nebulous, toeing the line between representation and abstraction. I am interested in elevating that which is overlooked into the realm of the fantasy by luring the viewer in to examine the immense detail and structure that is built up to create enchanting visions of the natural world.
