Nick Willems (1989) studied at the ArtEZ school of Arts and graduated from the Classic Academy in Groningen. During his studies Nick developed his own technique to express his ideas and imagination. Nick “paints” with a small burner and soldering iron on smoothly sand papered panels of poplar wood. With his theme “hands” Nick expresses his feeling about aging and passing away in an almost tender way.
His choice of material and working process are very apropriate: wood and fire – being and perishing. Also the combination of the natural patern of the woodpanels and his “painted” image creates a tension: human existence in an environment that seems totally accidental.
