Nicky Thompson NZ Contemporary Artist and Painter

'I incorporate images of lace, tapa and other fabric .....
Nicky Thompson

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.
