Rosamund Felsen Galler y presents the fourth solo show of new sculptural work by Patrick Nickell. The exhibition  “Letting Go” is comprised of color saturated large tabletop sculptures in which Ni ckell loosens his tight hold on strict  abstraction and allows his figurati ve tendencies to emerge creating a new body of work steeped in fantasy. Nic kell  continues his exploration of spontaneous line\, deviating from the cu rved flowing forms of his previous sculptures\, by  abruptly bursting the p laster sculptures at their ends. This exposure of tangled wire and burlap g ives way to  distinguishable forms: a falling figure\, raised fists\, protr uding tongue. These forms are perhaps the explicit  manifestation of the ar tist’s struggle to find his voice outside the realm of implicit abstraction .
