Naomi Nicholls is best known for her brightly coloured collaged installations of super glossy vinyl, slicked with abstract gestures which spread across walls, floor and ceiling. She also paints on cutout aluminium panels which in a similar way have broken the rules and escaped the rectangular canvas.
She has exhibited widely in Melbourne, including The Substation, Tinning Street Presents, and C3 Contemporary Art Space, as well as many artist-run spaces, and in Sydney at Gaffa Gallery. Last year she was shortlisted for Emerging Artist Award at fortyfivedownstairs, and in 2019 she was a finalist in both the Nillumbik Prize for Contemporary Art and the St Kevin’s Art Show.
Nicholls lives and works in Melbourne.
