Nicola Ellis: Osseous

About the Artist

Nicola’s practice is underpinned by an interest in the synchronisation of the natural with the unnatural. Drawing and printing generate ideas for play, which explores aspects of the materials used. Sculptural objects are then produced which combine these material experiences with processes that play with levels of physical control. The artist asks how far she can test the limits of the materials she uses.
