Decoys / Nicholas Nyland

from Decoys by Nicholas Nyland
The amazing Nicholas Nyland just posted an album of pictures from his recent opening at Backspace in Peoria, Illinois. Decoys looks really great and I wish I could see it in person. 
“I found an old duck decoy in a thrift shop that was made of canvas with an abstracted plumage design printed on it. It got me thinking about the way paintings or sculpture often operate in a similar manner, an act of dissembling through a surface treatment that stands in for another.”  - Nicholas Nyland
