Nick Hazzard

After completing a BA in Fine Art at The Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design, I became one of the original members of Espacio, a co-op gallery run and funded by a group of artists working across all contemporary visual arts media who wanted a space of their own specially designed to meet their needs. Since then I have taken part in many exhibition, both at Espacio and elsewhere, and last year I joined The Artistsʼ Pool. Over the years my work has encompassed abstract painting, collage, and, more recently, figurative drawing.

The driving force behind much of my work is chance and order, chaos and control. There is a struggle between maintaining the coherence of a piece while allowing enough freedom to keep the work fresh. Often it changes, sometimes to the point of destruction, but then a sudden insight, even an accident, can give it new life. Itʼs a bit like being an explorer, which can be dangerous but also exciting. As the famous German artist Gerhard Richter has said of abstraction, “Itʼs so mysterious, like an unknown land.”
