New York-based artist Nick Darmstaedter was born and bred in a postmodern age. The Los Angeles transplant, part of the infamous Still House Group, has never known the limitations of media-specific artistic training, nor glimpsed first-hand a time when art works had to be made, not only thought; when sound was not also, perhaps, sculpture; when a mass-produced object could not be labeled art; when painting didn’t seem to be on its seventh of its catlike nine lives. The field that Darmstaedter and his cohort have inherited has already been expanded, and is left wide open, rife with possibilities. Working within this expanded field Darmstaedter uses a variety of media and methodologies to create paintings, installations, and sculptures. This is his first monograph.
