Ones to Watch: Andrew Nicolaou

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

The photographic work of Sydney-based Andrew Nicolaou goes well beyond simply holding a camera. For his series Sub Zero, the artist undertook an all-consuming process of conceptualising, sourcing and manipulating his botanical subjects before photographing them in their frozen state. The temporal nature of this experiment naturally means that there is an element of the unknown between concept and final product, leaving something of a surprise for artist and viewer alike. Although modern in its perspective, Andrew’s work is traditional in its meticulous craftsmanship. Through each new series he proves himself an artist capable of transforming well-known subjects into objects of evocative beauty and wonder.
