The word formation has two meanings for me. The pair of women are joining together. Additionally, the colors and positions remind me of Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam portion of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. In this interaction, we have female figures in the roles. The activity is temporal, implying what is about to happen, as we witness an instant before the two women join hands.
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."
