Nick Carrick: Interview

Valerie Brennan interviews painter Nick Carrick about his work and process.

Carrick comments: "I want the work to take on a life of its own freed from its referent. The act of painting becomes as important as the final piece. It’s important to feel lost between the start and the finish of a painting but then arriving at something you are happy with. The subject of my work is essentially escapism. This can be portrayed by being lost in the making of the work itself or by painting actual everyday life that has elements of escape for example: trains, planes and holidays. I think it is more about escaping the mundane everyday life and connecting with something more spiritual and poetic, or trying to make a connection between everyday life and something more metaphysical."
