Nick Maroussas is a mixed-media artist. His collages explore the boundaries between the man-made and nature, reanimating found materials, shapes and colours which are often the by-products of design. New works are constructed by using found and existing materials such as card off-cuts and processing in quite a mechanical manner. Maroussas suggests these serendipitous compositions hold some inherent value which might offer us a fleeting glimpse of our connection with the world.
“I’ve become more focussed on the coincidental, in particular; inherited, random shapes which I process with a machine-like automatism.”
