Mike Nicholls was a founding member of Roar Studios, one of Melbourne's earliest artist-run-initiatives. Conceived as a proverbial roar against the art establishment, Nicholls and his comrades set about dismantling society's expectations of image-making.
An esteemed sculptor, Nicholls blurs the line between the figurative and abstract. Gnarled yet elegant, this work subverts the female form, turning it into a rugged landscape. It simultaneously recalls Matisse alongside Australia;s ligneous coastline.
Nicholls is represented at the National Gallery of Victoria, National Gallery of Australia and Heide Museum of Modern Art. He continues to exhibit widely, striking viewers with the elemental force of his work. For fans of Roar, expressionistic and sculptural art, this work is a stellar find. Knock on wood you collect it before it's snapped up.
