Nick Schleicher’s work ranges from color field abstractions to sculptural forms inspired by domestic display. Most recently, his practice investigates the relationship between object, painting, sculpture, and void. His latest series of shaped canvases dissolves the exactness of hardline abstraction and overtly rejects clinical crispness in pursuit of something more human. Schleicher’s practice embraces ambiguity; he utilizes abstraction as a vehicle for projection and engages with the empathetic potential of minimalism.

Schleicher also co-hosts the visual arts podcast Cool WIP with Silver Space STL founder Marina May. Cool WIP is a biweekly podcast of conversations with artists, curators, and gallery owners and operators.
