Join your host Jared at this month's Magnet gallery opening featuring local artist Nick Ice. You'll be electrified by Nick's alluring work that marries photography and digital illustration with graphic communications and visual media. Come meet the artist and enjoy wine and nibbles in the company of fellow BRIDGEMEN!
"This body of work is about angst, passion, survival, and celebration. So often, we grasp onto an idea, or expected outcome," says the artist of his work. "We search for security in an idea of success and happiness, which becomes increasingly less defined by our own instinctive desires...There’s a humor and a beauty to all of it, and to capture that is the only way I find self-redemption while walking amongst you camouflaged. You may very well be on your way down, but I’m going down with you."
Through collaborations with nightlife personalities, as well as modeling agencies in San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles, Ice has begun to build and refine his photographic skills. He currently lives in Downtown San Francisco, and is completing his Bachelors in Graphic Communications.
