  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

Nicholas Szymanski's compositions, while maintaining an avoidance of narrative do investigate the conceptual. The foundation of Szymanski’s interest and practice in painting is the idea of purposelessness. The artist views this as an experiential attitude arrived at through the process of making and viewing his work. The paintings are slowly developed over a duration of time without an end goal. Through this neglect of logical method and dismissal of linear structure the work becomes self-informed, intuitive and perceptual. The subject of the paintings is a quiet and experiential engagement. This may be likened to the concept of Aware, a Japanese idea in which a viewer arrives at an awareness of the ephemeral beauty of a world essentially marked by change and an aversion to definition.
