From a limited edition of 5 archival photographs. Signed and numbered by artist A K Nicholas. An isolated figure lays casually in an unlikely location. Her relaxed demeanor is paradoxical in the outdoor urban setting of concrete and steel. A thin strip of diamond-plate pattern reinforces the oblique line of her torso where it intersects the main diagonal division of the composition. The visual dichotomy between the dark upper right and the light lower left of this construction echoes the contextual dichotomy of her warm body amidst the almost lifeless surroundings.
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."
