WARD H. NICHOLS Statement

“I feel like at times I am a documentary painter because so often I’ll go back to the same subject years later and it’s no longer there – it’s gone. I feel like, in a way, I’ve saved that barn or that object. I continue to follow a natural inclination towards a variety of subjects and I appreciate the differences and challenges presented by each.”
