Nicole Rose's Artistic Practice
Nicole primarily creates abstract landscape paintings. She infuses her works with an ethereal quality by layering oil paints, sand and raw pigments. Using a sweeping brush technique, she responds to the power and drama of waves, skies and the weather. To accompany her paintings, the artist also produces complementary prints that are both a reflection of the original artwork and a new perspective on it. Her process consists of zooming in on a photographed section of her painting and then moving to Photoshop to rebalance and reimagine the shot. The resulting giclée prints are part of and separate from the original works, providing viewers with a fresh and fascinating response to nature.
Career & Exhibitions
Nicole graduated from Central St Martins School of Art in 1992 with a BA in Graphic Design. She has had a successful career as a Creative Director, running her commercial design studio for many years. The artist now works from her art studio in North London. Nicole has recently exhibited at The Other Art Fair in London, the Contemporary Art Fair, and the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair. Her giclée prints and paintings are in private collections worldwide.
