  • Nick LaPole is a painter, sculpture, and printmaker living in Brooklyn, NY. With drawing as a fulcrum, his work follows the path of dwellings, interiors, and observations that play along the spectrum of concrete and abstraction. He figures education is at its best when methods make autonomous, contingent human beings; artmaking is the core of autonomy.
