Chelsea, New York (PressExposure) September 29, 2008 -- Agora Gallery is proud to present Nicholas Palmer in Beyond Borders: Exhibition of Fine Art from Canada.
About Nicholas Palmer: Inspired by the adversity that characterizes the world around him, Nicholas Palmer creates striking images that challenge the viewer to see the commonalities that link people together. Although his work begins as a way to reconcile his own internal conflicts, Palmer uses dramatic, dark colors, rich textural paint strokes, and dynamic images to create a powerful visual drama that explores the ongoing quest for human understanding in a globalizing community. Through this process, Palmer assumes the role of a warrior as he brings this struggle to life through visual means. His paintings are imbued with a primal energy and his brushstrokes become breaths, slowly joining together to form paintings that are alive with his passionate spirit. Palmer continues to explore his deep interest in the way individuals define themselves within the constraints of social and cultural references. His art is an ambassador to the seemingly disparate cultures around him, allowing each viewer to see himself as part of the overarching community of mankind. Palmer lives and works in Ontario, Canada.
