Biography / Artist statement
Nicholas Cobb is a London-based artist working with photography, digital art and constructions. He has also curated exhibitions and is part of a team that organise the Nunhead Art Trail. He teaches photography, Photoshop and various fine art courses at Putney School of Art.
With photography he takes an experimental approach, mostly using a distorting mirror to find a more subjective and uncontrolled result in the mirror's reflection. Much of his imagery concerns the environment. In 2019 he spent time at the rewilding project at Knepp farm photographing the flora and recording the sounds in the woods and fields. These were then collaged together in the 'Field Works' series. In the face of environmental destruction of habitat he looked for the positive narratives.
Unable during Covid to travel to Iceland to see his newborn grandson he screen-grabbed google's street-views and photomontaged himself and grandson taking imaginary walks along Iceland's remote roads and melting glaciers.
