About Nicole Blake

In my artistic practice, I am driven to create a sense of permanence, ensuring that joy and happiness endure even in the face of profound loss, grief, and difficult times.

The creation of permanent beauty has become an intrinsic and undeniable need within me.

I employ a palette of bright and bold colours, utilising the power of chromatic intensity to infuse my works with a vibrant energy. My focus lies in painting landscapes and aerials as they provide me with a grounding force, channeling the healing and calming influence of the earth. Through my art, I seek to convey a profound sense of peace and tranquility that can be found in the natural world.

Choosing from a range of mediums, I alternate between oils and acrylics, guided by both my mood and the constraints of time. This fluidity in material selection allows me the freedom to fully explore and express my emotions within each piece. Consequently, my works pulsate with a raw intensity, characterized by dramatic colors, dynamic movement, and an array of emotions.

Texture plays a pivotal role in my artistic expression. By incorporating various textured elements into my work, I aim to create a multi-dimensional experience that engages not only the visual senses but also invites tactile exploration. This expressive textural quality adds to the boldness and captivation of each composition.

One subject that profoundly speaks to me is the depiction of dramatic, colorfull stormy skies. These paintings serve as a visual reminder that every storm holds a unique beauty and that even dark times shall pass. Capturing these transient moments, both good and bad, I aim to inspire my viewers, reminding them of the inherent beauty that permeates all experiences.

Ultimately, my artistic journey is dedicated to infusing the world with lasting beauty, relentless in my pursuit to evoke deep emotions and spark joy. With textured boldness, vibrant colors, and an unwavering focus on the land, my art strives to create a sense of permanence amidst the ever-changing nature of existence.
