Statement

Linda Lee Nicholas is a New York City based artist who makes paintings, drawings and installations centered on themes of nature, the environment and the fate of humanity.

Her abstraction combines the intentional with the intuitive as she looks to the natural world with altered elements, fluids, solidified capsules, evaporations and distortions. The work speaks of a complex understanding of the world in which we live, and the one towards which we are heading.  The work suggests manipulated hybrid creatures that can live in imagined parallel universes that evoke the casting of an eye skyward through a telescope. Process is vital as the painting and assembling elements are physical. The use of collage from random pours create fragments either cut out or peeled off to make hybrids suggestive of constructed matter circulating the body, nature and the whole universe.  All remains indefinable, weaving and shifting between whole and part, questioning and challenging our perception of space and representation.

She has shown work internationally in many exhibitions including the Stambourgh Gallery at Ohio Northern University, Museum Techniki, Maleniec, Poland, Museu Brasileiro da Escultura, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Monmouth Museum, Lindcroft, NJ, Ivy Brown Gallelry, NYC and the Schneider Museum of Art, University of Southern Oregon.
