Nicky Broekhuysen

Bang! #3 Archival Ink Hand-Stamped on Paper, Framed 150 x 150 cm Unique

The above work is by Nicky Broekhuysen. The image is made of works and letters organized in a circle and then slowing being destroyed around the edges. I love text based work that has a sense of decay, because it accents the mounds of information lost and our narratives as people disappearing one house fire, one spring cleaning, and one discarded life story at a time. These little tragedies degrade the whole picture, but we are still left with a core narrative and only something like WW III or an asteroids hitting the earth could break the center.
