Born 1943. Jim Nickel works across the genres, using photography, drawing, painting, and sculpture to develop his ideas. He creates with materials at hand: exotic hardwoods, the frame of an old handtruck from the Macy’s dumpster, precious metals, castoff ballast from boxcars, a bucket of roofing tar, lumps of fossilized dinosaur dung. Jim’s work are in the collections of the United States Treasury, the New York City Public Library, the Janet Turner Print Collection, and the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, among others. Kathy collaborated with Nickel as his master printer from 1998 through 2001.
