“​If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for a moment.​”

― ​Georgia O'Keefe

About The ​Symphony​ Collection

Whilst creating the ​Symphony ​collection, Nicola’s intention was to devise a collection of works that translate the animate properties of the subjects she depicts; wild, blooming flowers.

With each piece, Nicola aimed to bring her flowers to life on the canvas. Sitting somewhere between abstraction and figurative, Nicola’s floral compositions often appear to be moving on the canvas, creating a sense of movement and fluidity is a very important aspect of Nicola’s practice. Nicola’s process sits very much within the tradition of action painting, she applies gestural strokes to the canvas surface to examine flowers that she typically photographs, through a different lens.

I am a true believer that life is not a dress rehearsal. If you have the chance to do what you really love, go for it'.​"
