Nicholas Folland

Nicholas Folland’s realm poses speculations for ratbag scientists, fringe dwellers, explorers and dreamers.

Alexie Glass 2008

Nicholas Folland transforms the everyday, the overlooked and the no longer fashionable.  Using domestic crystalware, repurposed taxidermy, ice and other wonders, he makes material metaphors that speak to our history and identity.
