Nick GeorgiouThe Temple Gallery is pleased to present the work of mixed media artist, Nick Georgiou in the upcoming exhibition, Nick Georgiou: Paper Elegies.  Inspired by the death of the printed word, Georgiou, transforms discarded books and newspapers found on the street into sculpture, offering new possibilities in a digital world. The show opens on Friday, October 28 with an artist reception from 5:30 to 7:30pm, and continues through November 22, 2011. Nick Georgiou: Paper Elegies coincides with the Arizona Premiere of the Arizona Theatre Company  production of God of Carnage,  Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play.  

With lively works such as the Scholar, Nick Georgiou’s mixed media constructions breathe new life into old print. Georgiou selects, cuts, arranges, molds, and stacks brightly colored paper to create the illusion of a three dimensional sculpture on a 2-D surface.  Then with a light-heart and and a deft hand, he articulates his concern about the consequences of our addiction to the barrage of infotainment messages perpetrated by the iPad and 24-hour cable news.  His boundless enthusiasm helps us appreciate the fact that books offer up another way of organizing and understanding our world. 

A native New Yorker, Nick Georgiou received his BFA in Film and Television from the Tisch School of the Art at New York University, and worked in film prior to pursuing a full time career as a sculptor. Georgiou has received  commissions from Oxford University Press and the Washington Post Corporation. His work has been exhibited at Black Rat Press and Andipa Modern galleries in London, and in several shows in the New York area.  Georgiou moved to Tucson after an exhibition at the University of Arizona in 2009.
