Nicole Black is an emerging artist based in the southern Adelaide Hills in South Australia but currently working from a studio in the heart of the Adelaide CBD. She holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts in painting and drawing (2011) from the University of South Australia and an Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design (2014). The characteristic twists and turns of a creative career path has brought Nicole to her current position working as a full time artist on both personal and commercial projects.
She has long held a fascination with the ‘ebb and flow’ laws that exist within the life cycles of the natural world. In her paintings, drawings and murals she explores the juxtaposition of detail versus abstraction as well as the magic that is not always apparent to the naked eye.
Whilst representing the details of natural flora has been of importance, the abstract elements in her work are exaggerated to convey the emotions around the places she aims to capture.
