Nick Kaplony works primarily with drawing and photography and is interested in the phenomenon of the Psyche, and the more cryptic aspects of our un/subconscious experiences. Much of his practice draws on his family relationships, and considers inheritance, legacy and genetic predisposition through the lens of grief. His most recent work records the disquiet and anxiety of his sleeping hours through charcoal drawings of his bedding after turbulent nights sleep. Nick has shown nationally with organisations such as Manchester City Gallery, MOT Projects, ASC studios, Core Gallery and Geddes Gallery and Barbican Projects.
