ARTIST BIO AND STATEMENT

Hello all art fans, artists, creators, dreamers, and good people, Unwashed – “The state of ignorance or being from an unprivileged group.” Hello, my name is Nicolaus Myers, and I am a painter of over twenty years. I have spent a good deal of my life focusing on whatever aspect of my life I am trying to grow in. I have ignored everything else: stress, tension, loss, etc. As a volunteer and as a professional, I have also spent a lot of my life looking out for and working with underprivileged groups (violent, gang, and special need kids, kids that have no families, homeless people, mentally unwell, etc.). These two things have been what have inspired and pushed my work, and become my subject matter. The persistence, strength, frailty, and loss of these people – it all becomes part of me and part of my work. When planning this, my first “solo show,” this was the only show name that made sense. Unwashed. While growing my body of work, and further developing my own visual language, I had a son who has also found his love of art. He has been creating on his own, and with me, and has too developed his own style. Jacob loves computer programming, and is a nature enthusiast, rock climber etc., and his work has become this mathematical, nature-based, programming art. I reached out to Wendy Fox- Warfield, and she offered me this opportunity to have an art show, and it only felt right to include my favorite young man. I am writing to personally invite you to come to the show, and see what my son and I have brewing up. The show opening is February 2, 2020 from 3pm to 5pm, and it runs through the end of March, 2020. The show is located at Parlor Hair Studio and Gallery at 223 Glenridge Ave, in Montclair, NJ 07042. Hoping this finds you well, and thank you for your time.
