Nicholas Conbere, Finding Niches, 2012
ARTIST OF THE WEEK
Nick Conbere is an artist and educator living in Vancouver, Canada. He received an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Minnesota and an MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts.
“My artwork presents invented landscapes that are composed to multiple layers of drawings and photos built up to create complex, dreamlike panoramas. The works are experiential interpretations of place. For content material, I investigate architecture, found objects, and natural features of chosen locations. Intermixing this variety of imagery provides a way to create discordant and lyrical depictions of relationships between the natural and man-made worlds.”
Conbere’s piece will be showing in our New Prints/New Narratives: Summer 2013 show opening Thursday June 13th.
