Nick Torok

N. Torok has been a practicing artist for the past ten years in various disciplines after graduating from OCA in the integrated media stream. Presently hir work is a self-exploration of the mind-body connection in relation to emotional stress that presents itself in the form of physical manifestations. Hir recent work investigates gender identity and the gender binary on a personal level and on a social level. Hir artwork takes the form of life-sized drawings that examine the internal workings of hir body, paintings that detail these internal excavations and performances that physically display internal emotional process. Hir 2D work is a process through which N. arrives at hir performance material.
