From a limited edition of 6 archival photographs. Signed and numbered by artist A K Nicholas. Assoluta mien (absolute feeling/persona). Sunny tones wash over a dancer, stretching on a light background. The outlines of paper sheets give a graphical feel and create a visual paradox with their flat appearance as the subject protrudes. Her face is turned slightly, mind focused on her activity.
A K Nicholas was born in the United States and raised in the Middle East. Always at ease with visual expression, as a second generation artist, childhood included exposure to galleries and museums in dozens of countries. Although formally trained in painting and drawing, he chose photography as best suited to convey his ideas. "I feel the most successful images leave the viewer either unsure or unconcerned as to the precise process of production."
