KID NICKELS is what happens when years of unresolved childhood trauma piggyback rides a twenty year existential crisis into your local Dick Blick. Her characteristic (and frankly shoddy) style is punctuated by exploring themes of general spookiness and consensual adult butt-touching. Motivated solely by her desire to produce better Old Gregg fan art, Nickels' spatially palpable neuroses visually manifests itself in finely detailed relief and intaglio prints that serve as her only viable option for avoidance of entering the sex industry as a creaky and easily bruised thirty year old. Each hand-pulled print was made with profound love of the craft, real-problem/life-avoidance, and ceaseless incantations of "you're a stupid dumb idiot" for the duration of "the process."
