Colour Suite Collages by Nicholas Lockyer & Nick Paliughi

The collaged work of Nicholas Lockyer and Nick Paliughi caught my eye on the same day. Though their styles are different — with Paliughi’s works a bit more ornate and Lockyer’s a bit more lo-fi — the two embrace similar color palettes and compositional tendencies that make even the busiest of moments of each piece feel like negative space in contrast to their focal points (not to mention the obvious double Nick appeal). Recurring themes of humanity and nature also seem to play a fine and entertaining role with both, though Lockyer’s pieces feel darker and more humorously perverse, and Paliughi’s more whimsical and playful.

Nick Paliughli

Paliughli claims to have been making hand-cut collages since “he fell out of a barn broke his ribs. The ribs healed but the urge to make collages did not.” Humorous.

 

Nicholas Lockyer

The closest thing I could find to a bio was his friend calling him an “image poet” in this “magical” image. It speaks well for him.

As the Executive Director of Northwest Film Forum in Seattle and Editor-in-Chief of the interdisciplinary arts publication, REDEFINE, much of her work unifies her metaphysical interests with her belief that art can positively transform the self and society. She regularly shares human-centered stories through her storytelling newsletter, RAMBLIN’ WITH VEE! In 2020, she will [hopefully] begin production on a comedic Asian-American series entitled Reckless Spirits.

Ask Vivian about MARSHMALLOWS, cuz she's gross... and being tips for being frugal while nomading!
