Baz Nichols

Baz Nichols is an artist/writer whose work is informed by landscapes lost, abandoned, forgotten and mythic. Under the pen name ‘Eijls” he presents semi-abstract prose poetry, which takes the form of formulae and incantations, assemblages of descriptive images, and coalescent sense impressions which he sees as ‘acts of retrieval’. His written work might best be viewed as an ‘attempt at reconstructing a half-imagined past’, re-inventing and re-mythologising lost places. This often culminates in beautifully crafted art editions, sold periodically to a dedicated audience of devotees.
