Based in New York, Stephen Niccolls has exhibited his work extensively throughout New York, Massachusetts, and Minnesota. He attended the University of Massachusetts, Amherst where he received his MFA in painting.
"My paintings are in part about the surfaces of forms I see and have seen around me, everywhere I’ve been, since my earliest memories. To observe and examine such surfaces is to see and experience the passage of time, since much of their qualities are a result of the passage of time. The forms in my paintings are defined by their interaction with surrounding forms and spaces, and the light that is invoked by this interaction. The overall structures of the paintings often suggest a pattern-like organization, which reflects another characteristic I’ve
always noticed when observing my surroundings."
