Artist Statement:

 

Nicola's practice stems from a fascination with the natural world; its horrors, oddities, beauty and mystery. In drawings and paintings, she creates imagined scenes inspired by, and musing on, natural forms and cycles. These scenes can be intimate, with a zoomed-in focus on unsettling textures and protective structures, reimagined and distorted in an alternative world that’s both earthly and alien. More recently, Nicola's paintings reveal wider landscapes that include traces of human life, such as buildings or textiles, as well as reoccurring motifs of fire and the suggestion of an impending event. In her work she's often thinking about cycles; endless and unstoppable movements of decay, rebirth and transformation, whether that’s on a microscopic-level, happening within our bodies, to huge geological and even universal events. Fuelled by an undercurrent of climate anxiety and questioning the future of human existence, Nicola's interested in Earth’s previous and future inhabitants, playing with ideas of utopia and dystopia, and embracing serendipity in the notion of inevitable change.
