Harold Nelson
space Harold Nelson was born in the upper Midwest in the middle of the Twentieth century.He worked in the federal bureaucracy for most of his adult life, all the while creating art and soaking up images and influences in his free time.
In 2005 he escaped the day job world and moved to Port Townsend where he intends to make art for the rest of his time on earth.
Nelsonís medium is paper collage. His process is slow, intuitive and improvisational.Using bits of paper, he tries to create new images that he sometimes cannot even conceive of at the outset. He lets each piece happen and uses whatever mix of the abstract and figurative image or fractured view that will lead to the best outcome.His works are meant to be looked at from a distance as well as from close up and provide different visual rewards from varying perspectives.
