DESCRIPTION OF NICO'S WORK:
The large pieces represent the seven times of the day in a world where civilization has fallen and nature is slowly taking back its place. What we are seeing in those pieces are places, natural or manmade, that have become sanctuaries devoted to the celebration of nature. Each of these locations is inhabited by a guardian who watches over it.
There is an atmospheric progression, expressed through lighting and weather, very much inspired by symbolism and 19th century romanticism, with artists like Arnold Böcklin, Caspar David Friedrich and of course, Gustave Doré.
The smaller pieces are all improvisations of sorts, purposely done without planning, and their name "Invention" is a nod to Johann Sebastian Bach's Inventions and Sinfonies.
