ABOUT THE WORK When dawn arrives
And plants look like plants again
Not horrific faces in the dark
And you look like you and I look like me
And the ambrosia of the evening wears off
Only the sleeping flowers will know what happened.
The memory will fade into the air
As the sunlight evaporates the dew
And the flowers will wake up
And we will go to sleep. - Nick Atkins
Nick Atkins has recently exhibited at Mucciaccia Gallery (New York, 2020 and Rome, 2021) and as part of The Newsstand in Ocean of Images: New Photography at MoMA, New York. He has presented his work in guerrilla-style interventions across the United States at venues including Entrance Gallery, Procell, The National Arts Club, James Fuentes, and Muddguts. In 2019, he produced a collaborative clothing collection with Comme des Garcons. He has been a lead graphic designer for Supreme since 2015. His work, which integrates painting, film, sculptural installation, and fashion, draws on historic references, pop iconography, and his own idiosyncratic visual vocabulary. His practice employs techniques of appropriation and montage to disrupt recognizable imagery and storylines. Atkins received a Design B.F.A. from the School of Visual Arts, New York. He currently lives and works in New York.
