DARK ART PROJECTS
A raw photographic depiction of Nick’s deteriorating emotional and mental state, following the loss of three important people in his life. The death of his mother, father, child and the desertion of his wife. Shot in black and white, these images capture a shocking pictorial event deemed by Nick as the only solution for his pain.
DARK SIDE OF MY MIND
Explores the emotions and chaotic thought process of Nick as he considered, planned and pictorially documented his attempted suicide.
Examining the broken pieces of his fractured life, Nick analyses how he allowed himself to be restricted and unfulfilled, emotionally, mentally, physically, and professionally for a large part of his life.
Centred around the enforced dismemberment of Nick’s life, these images capture the rancid stench of a love turned to hatred, anger and his oppressed voice of reason.
THE OTHER SIDE
These images open up a chasm of exploration and experimentation, previously oppressed and denied from Nick.
NICK, DELIA AND AMELIA’S BIG DAY OUT
Nick captures the idiosyncrasy of modern day life and it’s stereotypical behaviours evident in our society that weaken values and morals to create a delusional lifestyle.
All of the above Dark Art projects are a total step away from the rock photography that Nick is renowned for. These projects will be featured as exhibitions across the UK Europe and USA at selected fine art galleries in the near future.
“Through these images, I allowed myself to rediscover the person I used to be. Having been creatively restrained for a large part of my life, I now find myself able to grow and develop my freedom of expression. My conceptional Dark Art projects portray my emotional journey to empowerment and allows me to push the boundaries of my art each day without fear of retribution or oppression. I have a renewed energy and deeper passion for creating my art work.” Nick Elliott
