A Sacred Space by Valerie NicholEarth, Water, Sky Abstraction by Valerie NicholJourney by the Pond, Tire Track Series by Valerie Nichol

 

Working in series, the inspiration for my art comes from the organic textures, colours, shapes and movement found in our physical world. My process is, by absorbing these elements, I then allow the subconscious to go free, transforming them - in an impressionistic or abstract fashion - into a piece of art. The general rule for my pieces is 'Spirit in Form' - trying to capture the feel, energy or essence of the form rather then duplicating it.

I work in acrylic paint and molding paste (for textures) on canvas or wood as well as relief sculpture in plaster or cement.

I the tree series, ashes from dead tree branches were sometimes used as part of the texture.

In the tire track series, I was inspired by the rhythmic pattern of a tire's thread in the earth - a moment of time when someone passes leaving an ephemeral mark - and have incorporated it into these pieces.
