    Nick van Woert’s work is profoundly rooted in his interest in architecture, history, nature, and semiotics. Van Woert first studied architecture as an undergrad before he turned his attention to art and earned his MFA at Parsons. However, architecture is a discipline which continues to greatly influence his work. For the artist, the focus is on the evolution of common building materials (from stone to Styrofoam), and using them to develop a language. Basic building materials are imbued with meaning through our daily relationship to them outside of the context of art.
