Nathaniel James Collins
BA (Hons) Fine Art
Nathaniel’s drawing-based practice stems from his fascination with the ever-changing perception of the reality we create. The flow of information is constantly being fed to us through the internet, and social media interactions. Our perception of this information changes the way in which we collectively view ourselves, both individually, and as a species. Utilising his experience with drawing- based mediums, he aims to exploit current news media, to create imagery that is shrouded in satire and irony, to relieve the power it holds over society. Additionally, Nathaniel works to create imagery that reflects his current states of mind through avenues such as emotional landscape drawings, and sculpture. Creating a dialogue for the audience to discuss how our perception of what we see is not always what we understand, Nathaniel hopes that we have the power to think for ourselves, in order to find the truth.
