Nicholas Bodde was born in 1962 in New York, USA. He lives and works in Bremen, Germany.

The intensive color of Nicholas Bodde’s painting unfolds on an aluminum ground. Horizontal fields–colorful parallels that radiate into the surrounding space – form the structure of his paintings. His rich palette includes pure tones and richly nuanced mixtures that create shimmering colors between rows of dark contrasts and delicate pastels. His work evolves in an intense and slow painting process, in which the artist investigates color as a concrete phenomenon in the interplay of contrasts and variations. Glossy, reflecting fields incorporate the surroundings in the pictorial space while roughed up surfaces provide the viewer with haptic stimulation.
