Our Lady – This is a homage to Notre Dame. I frequent Notre Dame on a daily basis when I am in Paris and so was heartbroken when it caught fire. There were beehives on the roof (as there are on many churches and monuments in Paris) and these were saved.

Nicky Foreman’s work is often 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.
