WORK OVERVIEW

"Ken Nicol’s work is part savant and part madness; using everyday objects to the extreme he creates work that boggles the imagination. With simple tools, like Bic pens, tape and Fine Makers, he runs them through a grueling, time dense process that only ends when the pens, or rolls expire. He combines the obsessive talents of a collector, with a keen observational talent of seeing art in common things and daily life, and then is able to create the tools (his work) for us to see it to. Genuine, humble and moving" (Todd Falkowsky via The Canadian Design Resource).
