Tucker Nichols

Northern California based artist Tucker Nichols creates iconographic works that transform the simplest objects into visual curiosities. Often drawing inspiration from nature, including his upbringing as the son of a prominent flower arranger, the artist layers various talismanic depictions of stones, plants and flowers in his sculptures, installations and drawings. Nichols says of his organic fascination, “I honestly want to understand the impulse to depict imaginary things from nature. I’m sure many smart people have opined on the nature of depicting nature, but it remains mostly unclear to me. I’ve been drawing branches and rocks and vases forever. There's something about conjuring a thing that didn’t exist the moment before, but is conceivably from the outside world.”


His work has been featured at the Drawing Center in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Denver Art Museum, Den Frie Museum in Copenhagen, and the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. His drawings have been published in McSweeney's, The Thing Quarterly, Nieves Books and the Op-Ed pages of The New York Times. He is co-author of the books, Crabtree and This Bridge Will Not Be Gray.
