Biography

With a depth of vision and a scale of multi-layered meanings, Nick Archer’s paintings possess a Lynchian quality that suggests a dystopian vision of the world in crisis, a journey at an end. His seemingly enchanted landscapes are influenced by fairy tales and children’s literature such as Snow White or Alice in Wonderland. Through colour, the power of nature and its sublime qualities are central to the art of Nick Archer. With a dominant colour in any composition working and reacting to a complimentary colour, the artist is looking for a balance between harmony and discord and for the colour to create an atmosphere of beauty and yet menace. Nick Archer’s landscapes, which at times focus on a point of interest such as a caravan or abandoned vehicle, are a witness to the vulnerability and isolation of our human condition; the paintings attempt to explore one’s place in the world.
