This article will take a deeper look into what this project has accomplished so far and the potential for a long-term wave of new genius it will provide to the Boston art community.
First things first. Who are the Nolin brothers?
Zachary and Maxwell Nolin grew up in Andover, Mass. Their mother, Catherine Nolin mentioned in a prior LTM article Beacon Hill Art Walk, is an accomplished painter with a revered and lovely collection of art. Their father is Scott Nolin, whose spiritual interests and philosophical mind coincide with the open and explorative nature of his sons’ artwork.
The brothers have been collaborating since they were old enough to.
The video above was directed by a young Zachary Nolin, starring a Maxwell Nolin and their cousin John Randall. With time their work has evolved both individually and collectively.
Max returned from a nearly six-month stay at the Blackfox Farm in Montville, Maine, back in June. This work-oriented getaway followed some traveling and a short stint at the Museum of Fine Arts School.
His artistic style thrives on an innate ability to infuse exact translation with photographic exactness with a metaphysical and fantastically imaginative atmosphere. The quality of the images speaks for them.
The older of the two, Zach has a similar imagination to his work. With a lot of work with designs and mandalas, he often produces overwhelmingly intricate and detailed works. The specificity of some of his work is reminiscent of Gaudi architecture, while the overall pieces are always pleasing to the eye and thought provoking. The same may be said for the quality of his art as was prior for his brother.
It’s hard to look at work by the Nolin brothers and not desire something from those minds for yourself to enjoy in your life in some way, shape or form. Deciding to let their artistic passion become their livelihood opened their cerebral doors for the world to reach in and pull out what it wants.
Both artists have done solo work in the past in various formats and mediums. Zach gathered a small customer base doing custom designs on hats.
Max painted murals on the walls of friends’ apartments. These two services continue to be offered by each one of them, but as a service of Dizolver Studios and along with a wide range of other forms of available and possible imagery.
So far, as a studio, Dizolver has produced some concert posters and album covers. The artists’ minds, however, are open and eager for the opportunity to produce any variety of visual service presented to them.
Dizolver Studios is a young project. Zachary Nolin stated their current mission simply as, “To get out there and connect.”
The challenge of simply being known is one that plagues and has plagued young artists throughout all of history. A simple and enthusiastic attitude seems to be an earnest and practical approach.
Much of the duo’s service has come through friends who have general projects but leave much of the creative production to the artist’s. “They know our work and they trust us,” said Maxwell.
Avid participants in various artistic and musical scenes in Boston, the brothers have been receiving a lot of projects from musical groups and music promoters (looking to promote shows), and requests for tattoo designs.
It’s an open road for Dizolver Studios. Maxwell elaborated on their current flow, “We want to get as much business as possible. We offer so many different services. Right now it is exploratory, so we can figure out what most people gravitate towards.”
Also on the side of a business in hopes of sustaining this studio, Zach emphasized the potential for apparel design. Zach stated that Dizolver offers custom painted hats and shirts, or really any piece of clothing one might desire, and also screen printed apparel. There will be independently designed apparel available for admirers in addition to the custom works.
Zach also elaborated on the possibility, with the studio offering video and photography services, of building a client base with musical groups and business in the hopes of providing any and all of their visual needs.
While the direction of these two is open-ended, their extraordinary craftsmanship and imagination are exact. Just walk into the fantasy world that is Dizolver and pick out what you want to take home.
