Naomi Nicholls is best known for her brightly coloured collaged installations of super glossy vinyl, slicked with abstract gestures which spread across walls and floor.
In her shaped panel paintings too, the straight lines of the traditional rectangular canvas are nowhere to be seen. Instead, they’re organic, blobby, and asymmetrical.
Nicholls has exhibited widely in Melbourne, including The Substation (2016), West End Art Space (2018), Tinning Street Presents (2015), and C3 Contemporary Art Space (2014), as well as many artist-run spaces, and in Sydney at Gaffa Gallery (2017).
Naomi Nicholls was a finalist in the Nillumbik Prize for Contemporary Art (2019), St Kevin’s Art Show (2019), Emerging Artist Award at fortyfivedownstairs (2018), and the Substation Contemporary Art Prize (2016).
Nicholls lives and works in Melbourne.
