Nick's work draws on the visual language of penitentiaries, New York City corporate landscape, and Brutalist/Modernist architecture, the work emerges from a myriad background of sources to create dystopic visions of imagined cities. His works organize themselves in the linear likeness of maps and Modernist Utopian cities, creating a hierarchy of structures intersecting and organizing space.
