About the Artist & Contact Details
Visual Artist Nicholas Lockyer’s collage work explores the relationship between the saturation point of digitalization in today’s society, Trash Cinema and lowbrow ephemera culture that exists outside the digital world and the themes of primitivism, ritualism, mutation and attitudes towards death.

As undefined forms become cut up, glued and juxtaposed new variations are crafted forming new worlds creatures and environments, With Influences as diverse as writers HP Lovecraft and William Burroughs to film directors David Cronenburg and Roger Corman, famous for their unique ideas of body shock and classic horror.

The work involves Human and swollen tumorous unrecognisable shapes during metamorphosis. It resonates with humanity's anxiety about there own reflection, in a world so obsessed with the ideal body, Nicholas Lockyers work transports this into a Kafkaesque nightmare.
