Nicky Foreman’s work is concerned with taking everyday mundane objects and resetting them, so they can be viewed as precious and beautiful. Her work can be viewed in two ways, as small icon-like pieces and as a work in its entirety. The difficulty in this is to create an innate sense of balance, wherein the viewer’s eye is not pulled in any one direction, but rather “floats” across the surface picking up different aspects.
Foreman began exhibiting in 1992. Her work is represented in numerous National & International collections including Saatchi & Saatchi, New York. She also has a teaching background and currently holds art classes for children at her studio. She draws her inspiration from her regular visits to France.
