Nicholas Tossmann is a Gold Coast based conceptual artist. Tossmann is intrigued by our innate curiosity as humans and our ability to question, irrespective of whether we can find answers. This innately existential curiosity is the primary motivator for Tossmann’s practice. Tossman’s work utilises text in the forms of installation, sculpture, performance and video and is often made site specifically, considering spaces and architecture to imagine how viewers could physically engage and relate to intangible ideas. Tossmann uses text for its ability to give tangibility to intangible ideas, and disseminate and expand upon those ideas. 
His work invites a contemplation of the self in relation to the absurd. By creating introspective thought and conversation around ideas represented in text we are able to gain an understanding of both our and others perspectives around how we construct meaning.

Nextdoor ARI

Nextdoor Artist Run Initiative exists to champion the experimental practices of emerging contemporary artists. Founded in 2020 by five emerging Meanjin (Brisbane) and Yugambeh Country (Gold Coast) based artists, we endeavour to be the ‘next door’ for aspiring artists, providing opportunities for artistic development and personal growth. With a current focus on South-East Queensland artists, our aim is to generate new and authentic art experiences, by facilitating the creation, exhibition and discussion of contemporary art.
