Iain Nicholls was born, lives and works in Darfield near Barnsley in South Yorkshire. He studied painting at Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art. Nicholls’ paintings are inspired by landscapes, cycle routes and journeys near his home. He works from photographs taken on these journeys, which purposefully contain sparse information, allowing more space for the imagination once back in the studio, where memory and familiarity also come into play. The painting itself, like an abstract painting, is of equal import as the subject.
