When you have invested in a piece of artwork it is something you should enjoy over and over again. Every time you enter the space it is hung it should bring you a sense of happiness and pride. It should be the talking point at a dinner party if hanging in your living area, it should be timeless and never date and always, always importantly make your room dance, sing and pop.
Artist Nicole Baker creates her work using a variety of in the moment brush strokes that feather across her working surface. Her loose, gestural work is controlled and complex in its colour palette and composition. ‘Carousel’ looks well thought out and delicately pleasing to the eye at first but upon a more detailed inspection you will find layers and layers of fleeting colour, an arrangement of solid shapes and free formed sketches that resemble a strong flightiness.
This happy and positive academic paints for the love of expression. Her confident self-shows through her chosen mediums. ‘Carousel’ is built up of textural layers of acrylic, gold leaf and oil stick. Solid, bold colours blend into transparent layers with ease. Smudged pastel blues, pinks and purples are embraced with the elegance of harsh indigo, navy and Prussian blue strokes. Gold leaf patches cover areas of the cotton canvas and break apart the drawn and painterly layers.
Nicole’s brush strokes are completely controlled, layers are added, removed, wiped out and re-drawn. Her colour palette is thought out before she starts painting with her brush, colour shaper or knife.
Her objective is to paint a purely abstract composition that is a signature piece in any room it is placed in. She believes a great piece of artwork should solely be enjoyed by its collector/s over and over again but should also speak to anyone who enters the room it is hung.
Creativity and self-expression are essential for everyone. When collecting a piece of artwork by artist Nicole Baker feel confident that you are adding your own sense of flair to your room. Dress your chosen room, add furnishings and detail around the painting that speak to you. ‘Carousel’ will flatter a hallway entrance that features a simple chair and throw, or it would hang beautifully in a traditionally furnished or contemporary room. It can add elegance to a bedroom and speak poetically or it can paparazzi a lounge-room. It is a chameleon piece that can be worked into many interiors
