Beeswax, Wood Panel, Blackened Steel
Nick Theobald (b. 1986) is an American artist working in Brooklyn. His contemplative bond with abstraction and materiality acts as a vehicle to explore notions of purity. With luminous drips, imprints, and layered gestures, his unconventional adaption of natural materials places him among artist challenging painting traditions. The tonal variety drawn from the unaltered beeswax heightens the work's lustrous qualities while investigating the capabilities of the material.
