“Strange, especially because of combining items that are never found together in reality” - there are many definitions of “Surreal”, but this is the one that best fits Nicole. Nicole’s work is grounded in reality, in science, and in only things which are found in nature. She uses these elements in combinations which surprise and delight the viewer. By using the magic of surrealism she captures the audience’s attention, opening up the possibility for a deeper experience, and and allowing them to drop their preconceived notions of what art is meant to be.
