Artist's Statement

Nicholas Fedak II

My work is about splendor in decay. These images are visual ghosts that capture the passing light and an essence of what was. What happened to the strangers who laughed and lived? Are we seeing what’s left of their forgotten dreams? Or only an illusion of what’s been left behind? My work is transparent and fleeting, as is memory and the intangible, evanescent past. With my body of work, the past is yet to come!
