Australian Artist Nicole Baker creates her paintings to be the star of any room. She believes artwork should be so striking it can’t be ignored, and it should bring joy to its owners every single day.
Artwork is an investment that can last a lifetime. It can be passed down, generation to generation. It can be a conversation starter and evoke emotions like joy, romance, whimsy, or even sadness and nostalgia. A beautiful piece of artwork can speak volumes about the home it lives in and it should be displayed with pride.
Using a vibrant and stimulating colour palette, Nicole uses a variety of spontaneous brush strokes to create loose and fluid compositions. ‘Hugs & Kisses’ is delicately pleasing to the eye but upon close inspection, layers and layers of colour, shapes, and free-formed sketches create overall complexity. It’s joyful yet agitated with constant movement, lending its viewer something new to discover every single time it’s looked at.
‘Hugs & Kisses’ is coated in textural levels of acrylic, gold leaf, and oil stick. Nicole adds, removes, wipes out, and redraws layer upon layer of her mediums using a variety of brushes and knives. Solid, bold colours blend into transparent layers with ease. Smudged pastel blues, pinks, and purples are entangled with smoky indigo, navy, and Prussian blue strokes. Gold leaf patches are rich and indulgent throughout.
‘Hugs & Kisses’ will add intrigue and sophistication to a bedroom or hang beautifully in a traditionally furnished or contemporary living room. It will add elegance to an open foyer or extravagance to a lounge room. It is a chameleon piece that can be worked into many interiors, completely changing the mood and tone depending on its surroundings.
You can feel confident that any Nicole Baker piece in your collection will cause an excited stir amongst guests in the best of ways. Her paintings are true originals that bring long-lasting magic to any space.
