ARTIST IN SAINT ALBANS - MIKE NICOLL

MIKE NICOLL

Once ready to draw/paint/shoot I tend to plan the logistics of my work in great detail. I like to have everything in place… this is the ‘Ordnung’ that I need—my German half—and not until that is done can the eccentric Scottish part of me take over. More often than not the work I produce is figurative, but that is all that holds it together. My style and the materials I use vary a great deal and I have no hesitation, when it comes to painting, to jump from one style to another if the mood takes me. I will happily use 14th century egg tempera techniques, scratching away at a piece of gesso-coated wood one minute, and then flit over to the iMac and produce a purely (21st century) digital piece. And, I am probably at my happiest when all the different styles merging.
