Nicolas Holiber is a Brooklyn-based artist known for his mixed media paintings and large-scale sculptures.
Process and materiality are central to Holiber's practice, which can be seen as a celebration of form and color. His paintings oscillate between abstraction and representation. Taking a sculptural approach to image making, he negotiates the territory between intuitive mark-making and creating recognizable forms. The result of which leaves the viewer with a palpable, tactile sensibility that begs for interpretation.
