Exhibition Information

Troy Nickle will be exhibiting a new installation that will contextualize his figurative sculptures through his glimpse into the life and work of Alberto Giacometti. The sculptures represented are not replications of Giacometti's work but rather insights inspired from Giacometti's style, treatment, and usage of texture. Nickle is influenced as much by Giacometti's sculptures as he is by images of the artist working in his dark dusty studio space surrounded by the unfinished ambiguous forms. It is Nickle's desire to instill his forms with the same ambiguity; where limbs disappear as if the figure is standing on a distant horizon, vertical. A testimony of the unknown.
