Born From News : Sculptures made from Newspapers by Nick Geogiou    Posted on by Jaspal

My art is inspired by the death of the printed word” said by Nick Geogiou who is the behind the Books and newspapers that are becoming artifacts of the 21st century. His sculptures are products of their environment —both literally and figuratively.

He uses local newspapers to add authenticity, and the form the sculpture takes is a reflection of the personal connection & feeling to that particular city.  Taking inspiration from America’s South West, and in particular Tucson, AZ–where he lived and worked for almost two years. Going from NY to the desert is a pretty dramatic shift. by Nick Geogiou"

" The central element of the exhibition consists of a substantial number of polychrome figurative sculptures that embody the feeling of the uncanny through their scale and use of colour, form and material. Kelley relates these to the idea of the ‘double’ – the disturbingly realistic representation of the human figure suspended between life and death. Non-art objects include a variety of historical and contemporary anatomical models, wax figures, animatronic puppets and mounted (stuffed) animals."
