Nick Mauss often collaborates and co-curates exhibitions with his partner Ken Okiishi. He also teaches, recently serving as a guest-professor in the department of Painting and Drawing at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Hamburg.
Nick Mauss is a multi-disciplinary artist who makes drawings, paintings, sculpture and performance art. Throughout his practice, drawing offers a form of guidance to him and to his audience. It is a uniting thread and viewers of Mauss’ work observe draughtsmanship at what often appears to be various stages of completeness. Figures made out in graphite are often visible but their entire form is often fragmented. As Mauss has mentioned “Drawing is the underlying process for what I do, and in its variety, allows me to work in forms that fall between categories”.
