Nick Rivers

Mr. Rivers’ artwork moves between the universal and the specific and reflects a search for experience, possibility, and meaning. The artist writes, “I see myself as a construction worker who has chosen to challenge his own buildings. Within the frame of masculinity and the body, I dream of love, creation, decay, and violence. I question why one should build anything at all. Yet, somewhere between the universal and the specific lay a reconciliation of the sacred; that sinuous tether which binds all people as one.”
