Art Hive with Nikki Middlemiss (in-person): December 18, 10:30 am to 1 pm
An exploration of transformative states and time as defined through the repetition of a mark or gesture are unifying themes in Nikki Middlemiss’ art practice. With these new drawings, she continues her use of layers and transparencies as she explores the inherent qualities of the tracing paper surface and the interactions of materials. Following the application of paint the paper warps as it dries, behaving much as skin does as it heals a wound. As the fragile, transparent support shrinks and abrades, the drawing elements coalesce into new form.
