London based fine-arts artist Nicole Coson paints portraits of ghost. Or as she states on her website:
My work revolves around the analogy of the ghost, an enigma, or a loose and ever changing form that cannot be grasped yet it invades our tactile and physical world. The suggestion of movement is integral to my work, with a constant shifting of familiar signals resulting in a refracted version of something recognizable; the viewer is asked to read, but cannot. I wish to put the viewer face to face with something alien, but to lead them to draw no conclusions, resulting in a feeling similar to the unsettled nervousness of Freud’s Uncanny.
I love Nicole’s aesthetics. The way she translates her thoughts on ghosts and the unseeable onto the canvas delivers beautiful pieces. I see some similarity to the works of Joseph Loughborough – I guess it’s in the movement of the figures, them still taking shape. Enjoy!
Thank you for reading! What do you think of Nicole’s work?
