“I really am turning into a moth. The light on my phone keeps me searching for truth in all the wrong places…” ~ Nick Drake

Nick Drake considers the urban landscape of Brisbane — and the people who occupy it — with distrust and intrigue. Sourcing visual material for his paintings with his smart-phone during late night misadventures in the city, Drake specifically pursues and captures images of people he believes to be ‘letting their hair down or who are up to no good.’
