Straddling abstraction and figuration, his works produce poetic, dreamlike images characterized by a state of perpetual vagueness—the artist favors unfinished figures and ambiguous forms.
Nick Mauss applies his repertory of forms using various techniques on different supports, including omnipresent ceramic and gleaming panels.
Fine, light drawings—executed in black or color—with hinted features, stippling, projections and crosshatched flat or hazy colors join and overlap to bring forth fragmented silhouettes and undefined patterns.
