Oil on canvas, 44" x 48"
Nicole's current paintings are non-literal spaces, both near and far. There is the overall spatial experience as well as small painted moments to be slowly observed. Nicole's perceptions are made through their substance, through their materiality, through the paint (there is nothing like paint, but paint can be like so much). They are evidence of ritual, icons of renewal made of color. The paintings function like visual poetry, objects for reflection and experience. Meaning is there when the viewer looks carefully.
