Studio progress by Nicole M



I wanted to share a glimpse of what I've been working on in the studio over the last few weeks at Creative Paradox! It seems like our Appetizer show only just happened, but I've been plenty busy since then. Excited about these paintings! Now we're mainly preparing for our end-of-residency solo shows in May. Big deal. More to come! 

Here are some backwards in-progress shots of the painting on the right: 
And also a large collage based off my animation:
 Studio LYFE. When I was in high school, I intentionally splattered paint, Pollock-style, all over a pair of jeans so that they would be my "paint pants." This time though, my paint pants are the real deal. Does this mean I'm more of an artist now than I was in high school? Who knows.

Stay tuned for some exciting news in a couple days!

Installation experiment by Nicole M

Here's an experiment I've been working on recently in my studio at Creative Paradox, painting on the walls & floor. I wanted to try incorporating objects into my painting, and move outside of the canvas. While it was a great experiment, I'm not sure I'll be moving into sculpture anytime soon! I do like the shape of it though, and think there are some nice moments. Here's a few reverse shots in-progress: 
 


MICA Thesis Show by Nicole M

Well it's official official! In addition to the No Boundaries' Block Party, last weekend also marked the graduation ceremony and thesis exhibition for MICA's class of 2012! It was a whirlwind of art, activity, family, & friends, and I'm excited to share some images of the final show! Although I finished classes back in December, I've been working on a new series of paintings for this spring's thesis exhibition, and I'm really proud of how everything came out! I also got to walk across the stage and shake hands with Fred Lazarus, which symbolically marks the end of my MICA career and beginning of my real life one!

Sincere thanks to everyone who stopped by to see my work during the show.
