Nick Darmstaedter produces artwork without an affinity to a single medium or material. He is best known for his active involvement with artist-led organization, The Still House Group, founded by Isaac Brest and Alex Perweiler in 2007. Like his Still House peers, Darmstaedter frequently produces works that employ found objects; he states that gathering and sorting are a crucial part of his practice, in which chance also plays a significant role. His works, however, are not readymades, but transformations that emphasize the materials’ physical properties and original forms. Darmstaedter’s works nod to the American Pop and Minimalist movements.
