Using sleek, simply sculpted fish as symbols for the individual in society, Nick Wirdnam creates a sense of tranquility and peacefulness in his pieces while communicating his sentiments about relationships, intimacy and distance between people. Variations in color, gesture and form suggest that while we are all individuals with differing stories, many of our basic experiences are universal.
艺术家简介 About The Artist
