A solitary nude figure, a single tree, a flat horizon, and an empty sky. She is dwarfed by the lonely vertical structure, almost in an embrace. A muted composition in tones of sepia, pinks, and a hint of steely grey. The reserved colors and still climate can be interpreted as almost any time of year. This pieces speaks as much through what it does not show; a barrenness that whispers a quiet affection for the vastness of nature.
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."
