Court Tree Collective is proud to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Brooklyn-based painter Nicholas Battis. This exhibition titled Threads is an exploration between the natural world and our technological age of the interconnectedness experience.

Nicholas Battis deftly balances spontaneity with an analytical approach in his work. His paintings are process-oriented, problem-solving exercises where he deliberately preserves the marks that represent the history of this creative struggle, oftentimes removing layers to reveal what’s underneath. These recent paintings reference our natural world and our technological age of interconnectedness experienced through the Web, social media, and virtual reality.

The title of the exhibition “Threads” refers both to the title of one of the major works in the exhibition, and to the many ‘threads’ of exploration that the artist investigates such as geometry, paint phenomena, and compositions that vacillate between landscape forms and patterns. Lastly, it refers to the structure of the paintings which incorporates overlapping forms, lines, and drips that allude to a woven tapestry, a metaphor for our complex world of information.
