New Blood Art Statement

Read more via the blog Re Nicola's investment potential.

Nicola Wiltshire’s paintings hold absorbingly bold forms, which immediately capture the viewers’ attention. Portraits formed with use of heavy linear structures resemble expressionistic styles whilst flat colour and striking use of pattern give the figures unusual and therapeutic dimensions. The rendition of each piece lends it an evocatively striking impact. The line and form are fluid and diverse, allowing the portraits to portray illusive identities and an intriguing subjectivity. The use of colour is similarly exciting; mixed hues create muddied and pastel shades, which are placed in contrast of one another, side by side. This creates a stimulating juxtaposition of a calming sensibility whilst conversely adding ambiguous tensions.

Artist Statement

My paintings explore the magic and surrealism of life at its most mundane and everyday level. Through studying people, and mountains, and trees, my aim is to highlight the universality of humanity and the way we try to weave meaning into it all. I am interested in God and visual language, but also in combining the two to make suggestions about the scenes I paint. By layering, refracting and blurring my references, I hope to create a body of work that is visually hyperreal and dense with opportunities for interpretation. Pattern, texture and high-pigment colour are combined to further emphasise these ideas. I have developed a way of working with fabric that allows me to remain playful and experimental, whilst at the same time referencing the cultural, social and historical context of the work, as well as the traditions of oil painting. I am a contemporary painter, who is African, Scottish, English and British, which is part of my identity, but also vital in the way I make my work.
