First Cut - Nicola Woodcock
Opening Night: Friday May 24th from 6pm
Pre-sales open Monday May 20th at 8pm via the online store
Nicola Woodcock's still life works are inspired by the flora surrounding her home on the edge of the Australian Bush. First Cut is a collection of the most vibrant stems she cold find, whether foraged or bought. Working in oil pastel with bold, gestural marks and always from life, Nicola creates works that are vivid and immediate.
Nicola is a Sydney based artist. Working in her Terrey Hills studio she draws inspiration from the surrounding bush landscape. The relatively crude nature of oil pastels encourages the focus on simple line and colour and promotes a use of decisive, gestural marks. Nicola's still life pieces are usually ‘finds’ from her neighbours’ gardens, from the roadside or local reserves.
