'In the Surface' is a new artwork by Nicole Tijoux, an award-winning artist from Chile, whose work focusses on the visual transformations that occur when the human figure interacts with water. Water and background act as a veil for the human body and the vast expanses of space that encapsulate the form are explored in her beautifully composed and rendered paintings. Her work attempts to address the concept of changing states and the immediacy of this visual change, captivating a moment and translating it onto the canvas.
The expansive spaces within her paintings are there to communicate the smallness and insignificance of the human form in relation to the vastness of the ocean and all that it encapsulates. Nicole's works address ideas of space, silence and solitude, where our visual form blends with the water.
“In the series called “Oceans” I explore the difference between the human and this huge mass of water, how small we are in relation to this giant ocean that feeds our planet, in a space of silence and solitude where our colors and form blend with the water.“
