Nick Bamford is an undergraduate student at CSULB in the BFA Ceramics program. He is graduating this semester.he plans to take a year off and apply for master program in 2017. Nick is originally from Huntington beach , California. Nick has been interested in arts specially drawing since he was a kid. playing guitar is one of his favorite hobbies.
Nick’s Exhibits were structed from Various objects such as flags, bird cages , lamps ,fans and etc. he basically used random miscellaneous stuff that can be found at any places. there is not any actual shape in his pieces but they are very interesting to look. Nick is really into lighting and he used different lights like neon , back and fluorescent lights in his work. the lights made his art pieces look very exotic.
Nick’s exhibit belongs to a branch of art called assemblage sculpture. assemblage sculpture is all about placement of different objects together based on artist’s feeling and without having any pre-planned strategy. nick’s exhibition’s inspiration came from his urge to escape from routine life. he placed different things to each other and see what feeling he got. he basically made whatever he felt at the moment he was working on his exhibit.
Nick’s exhibition was very interesting and unique. he wanted to do something that nobody has done it before. I really liked the idea that he has about living in a moment and following the feelings without being worried about the result or whatever other people would think or say.
