Nick Ivins

Nick Ivins (b. 1966) studied Canterbury College of Art, lives and works Lyme Regis in a studio over-looking the Cobb.

His paintings are emotive and humble, with a playful clumsiness that frequently threatens to slide into chaos. His work references the domestic and human in a wild landscape, the protective embrace of harbour walls, amidst the threats from sea and wild weather, and the fragility of human existence.

He paints in oil on panel and montaged canvas that is evocative of torn and patched flags and sails, as much as his own battered workwear from which much of it derives.

He is a former tractor driver, commercial photographer, co-author of The New Homesteader (Pub. 2016 by Ryland Peters and Small), occasional actor,
and gig rower.
