Nick Fagan:

Richmond-based artist Nick Fagan received his MFA in Sculpture + Extended Media from The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH (2017), and his BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA (2014). Fagan’s most recent solo exhibitions Mundane and Making Authority were exhibited at ADA Gallery (Richmond, VA) and Versa (Chattanooga, TN). Fagan has also been featured in multiple group exhibitions with ADA Gallery, including 15 YRS! EVERYONE IN THE POOL! (2018), Fine Line (2018), and Untitled Art Fair Miami (2017). His work has been most recently in the group exhibitions Encounters with Good Children Gallery (New Orleans, LA), GOT IT FOR CHEAP with Western Exhibitions (Chicago, IL), Destroy Your Eyes with Baby Blue Gallery (Chicago, IL), Gingerblue with Feast Gallery (Fayetteville, AR) and Open Yards with YARDS projects (Cleveland, OH).

Residencies include the Vermont Studio Center (Johnson, VT), the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (Madison, ME), as well as the Anderson Gallery (Richmond). His most recent residency in June 2018 was with the ARC Residency (Chattanooga), where he produced and exhibited a body of work entitled Making Authority. Fagan has been awarded the John Fergus Family Scholarship Award in 2017 and 2016, the VSA Kennedy Center Award in 2016, the Harold North Award in 2014 and the Charles Renick Scholarship in 2013. He has been featured in press ranging from NPR and New American Paintings to THE RIB and Artist A Day. His work is also part of the Ohio State University Collection.

Fagan’s large paintings and sculptures often focus on the mundane, with the intersection of action and reflection. The stark, linear steel outlines of his sculptures and the crisp, yet psychedelic, overlapping of forms in his work incite humor, introspection and uncertainty.
