Ken Nichols returns to Sager Braudis Gallery with vast, cosmic canvases that abandon form and intensely explore the power of color and movement.  Grounded in process, like much of Nichols’s work, the series was created by indulging fundamental observations of pigments’ solid and liquid states, seizing the transformation in change, separation, and coagulation.  While some of the outcome is random, the environment is steadily controlled by the artist.  Nichols shows his adeptness with color relation and composition all while allowing the entropy of chemical reaction to unfold with spectacular effect, each painting an analog universe set into motion by the artist’s hand.
