Nicholas Males is a trans-disciplinary based emerging artist who works predominantly across sculpture, painting and print making.

Dealing mostly with topical political issues, his work explores people's preconceptions and how such readings create narrative within art thus provoking response through in-depth installations within spaces. Nicholas has just completed a Bachelors of Fine Arts with Honours in Wellington; this exhibition will be his first solo show out of art school as he develops themes within his own practice, exploring different methods for developing political art.

"Please, No Circulars" uses the simplistic nature of the magazine stand predominantly used in residential advertising as a repetitive motif, mimicking the distressing state of the housing market within New Zealand. These objects are distributed to such peculiar places that they become dissolved into that very location, circulating something with disproportionate values, so much that it becomes nonsensical.

From the 'Gems on Jessie Street' to 'Premium Penthouse Living', these circulars are seemingly utopian with the animated use of contrast and vivid colours outshining the observer. The other series titled 'Void' will show a true reversal off this, a real life test of what are the parameters of a space that make something a home.

This series is about irregularities becoming regularities, the documentation of homelessness, and not belonging. This fashioning of materials together when you have so little; the imagery will show the remnants of where the homeless have been and what belongings they have left behind.
