Collection: Nick Lamia | Cloud Architecture

ARTIST STATEMENT

Careful contemplation is an essential part of my drawing process, and I hope each work here will reward viewers who look closely. Life events, changing cloud forms, and the stages of a drawing exist as an accumulation of past actions that set the stage for future possibilities. And like life and clouds, not all stages of a picture are equal. It is my job, and great pleasure, to seek and find, through drawing, imagery of particular vitality and then to let it be. Each time I stop working on an image, I perceive an unquestionable entity. This ineffable but specific wholeness compels me to make it permanent by leaving it alone.
