Nik Christensen was born in England and raised in The Netherlands where he attended Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Nature, and in particular man’s existence within it, has always been a strong focal point in his work. Interested in the duality of destruction and resurrection and exploring the friction between the real and imaginary, he looks for new interpretations, reconfiguring that which looks familiar. The monochromatic drawings on paper are made with sumi ink, often large format. The simplicity of materials and the immediacy of working with ink allow for a certain stillness yet creates tension in its permanence.
