Nigel Cox grew up on the edge of Dundalk, a small market town in County Louth. He went to the Riversdale College in Liverpool and joined the Transglobe Expedition right after graduation. His exposure to “the staggering beauty of vast and often barren spaces” has affected his art. Nigel’s stye of Photorealistic Minimalism came about because of his love of large open spaces and lack of clutter at the same time, he is also fascinated by detail. As a result, the subjects of his paintings are ” are alone but not lonely; searching but not anxious, anticipating yet calm”. His work invokes a sense of inner peace and tranquility.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
