Nicky Thompson "Isolation"
Solo Exhibition August 17 - Sept 2
Opening and artist's talk Saturday August 17 3pm

I like to think my work evokes a peaceful and restful feeling. I love to capture a moment in time, when for a split second you stop and almost feed on something that slows your breath. Nature has lent me these moments. Inspiration for my work comes from my love of our surroundings that we are so privileged to have. My work has a common theme of our native birds, their diverse nests and feathers combined with layers of fragile voil lace and highly tropical patterned fabrics entertwined with crisp glass vessels placed with na’ive organic shaped urns. Movement is created with a whispy breeze playing through the fabrics and allowing a feather or two to float gently across often coming to rest on a delicate flower- a quiet peaceful time. Sometimes I use tapa cloth with it's illustrated stories. I mix acrylic, oils, cont’e, oil pastel and resin together to create this feeling of quiet tranquility.
A private moment suspended in time with paint for ever.
NB The following is a small selection of the new paintings that will be available for the exhibition.
More will be uploaded closer to the opening.
