Intro-Circumspective is a collection of sculptural works incorporating raw materials, found objects and ephemera. In this collection, Nicholson examines the ideas of guilt/contrition, self-love/self- hatred, courage/fear, and the resolution of these extremes. Some work poses the question, “How close is the me that I present to you to the me that I truly am?” Others reflect on the humanity of people often thought of as the Working Poor and questions what poverty really is. Intro- Circumspective is the work that has emerged from periods of Nicholson’s self-examination and personal inventory.
