Nicky Foreman’s work can be viewed twofold – in small icon-like pieces and as the whole. Her work is concerned with taking everyday objects and resetting them, so they might be viewed in a difference context – as precious and beautiful. Within this method of working Foreman plays off order against chaos, and abstract against figurative. The video, featured above, filmed three years ago relates to Foreman’s past and ongoing practice

My current work has a duality – the meshing together of past work drawn from the landscape and personal family history of the North Taranaki region and more recent bonds with France. Over the last 15 years I have worked with a range of media inventing different surfaces for myself. I want to create a tactile quality that makes the viewer almost need to touch the work.– Nicky Foreman
