About the Ebook
A book of large format stretched canvases depicting natural rhythms, patterns and textures that can be as fleeting and dramatic as the changing of the tides on the shores that created them. The canvases bear imagery that no longer exist and will never be repeated again identically. At our feet everywhere, the patterns left in sea sand by winds and water, are largely taken for granted. With this body of work I tried to raise awareness for their beauty.
Nic won his first art prize at age thirteen, published his first photograph at age 17 and studied photography, journalism and interior design. As a press photographer from 1977 Nic photographed hard news and sport, people, motoring, fashion, theatre, travel, human interest. As a journalist he reported hard news and court proceedings, and he was his newspaper’s crime reporter and defence correspondent. After graduating from Interior Design in 1986, Nic worked as a designer for an exhibition firm and later an advertising agency. In 1991 he started his own exhibition company and designed and built exhibition stands and pavilions internationally. Nic returned to concentrate on only photography and design when he moved to Sydney, Australia in 2004. His photographs and artwork have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions. In 2015 he launched the fabric design company Artfabrics. His current design work focuses on fabric design, corporate graphics and digital 3D projects.
