Nick Selenitsch’s art practice promotes the artistic and social importance of “not-knowing”. Through a variety of media – installation, drawing, sculpture and public artworks – his works create an elemental language out of familiar forms where the impulse to achieve the goal of singular understanding is both continuously acknowledged and endlessly eschewed. Most recently, he has achieved this by incorporating the aesthetics and motifs of games, sports and civic markings to make artworks that flirt ambiguously with the rules and procedures of their source.
Nick Selenitsch received a Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting) with Honours from the VCA in 2003. He completed a Masters in Cultural Material Conservation at the University of Melbourne in 2005.
