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.
