Nicole is a Toronto-based visual artist and one of my good friends. Her work is heavily influenced by Japanese art, culture and aesthetic, after having lived in Kyoto, Japan. Fashion, product and spatial design, architecture, minimalism, muted palates, colors and graffiti are a constant and powerful inspiration.
Nicole is currently exploring the effects of liquid acrylic on layered acrylic panels (or plexi), light, shadow and reflection. Building each piece with multiple layers of plexi creates physical depth and dimension, investigating 3-dimensionality within the concept and structure of a 2-dimensional wall piece.
