About

REID NICHOLLS Lines, lines, lines, 2018 ceramic, glaze, clay pigment, paint, acrylic glass 60h x 32w x 28d in Reid Nicholls is an American ceramic artist from Ohio, where he studied and received his BA in Visual Communications Technology at Bowling Green State University. He studied studio art at Hunter College in New York City and received his MFA in Ceramics from Indiana University Bloomington’s School of Art & Design. Nicholls is a painter, sculpture, and ceramic artist currently living and working in New Orleans, Louisiana. His ongoing body of work centers on systems, either inherent or self imposed. ​He has exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently in Hundisburg, Germany at the Terra Arte Symposium. STATEMENT I use abstraction to create compressed symbols referencing the body, manipulation of line, and landscape. These forms are abstracted in their mimicry of the process in which we design and shape our cultural boundaries, political geographic borders, and our communities.​ ​ I see these shapes and lines as a reflection of an act of passive violence. The core of the work reflects on the divide in our culture seemingly motivated by power, control, aggression, and concealment, creating abstractions that are both landscapes and figures morphing into formal ​tableaus​ that focus on the ways in which we create and design space for ourselves. Through borders, perceptions of lines, walls, and architecture​ ​the lines and shapes define a space, one in which people perceive safety and one in which people perceive otherness, cutting through the landscape as monuments to progress or failure.
