Nik makes sculptural machines that have drifted away from utility and objects that have forgotten their purpose. Some move and others teeter on the edge of movement. They are assembled from found objects, scrap and steel. Each work might embrace paradox or absurdity but is comfortable with it’s own quirks and runs to it’s own logic.
In 2019, Nik was elected to become an academician at The Royal West of England Academy in Bristol.
