..............................

Nicole Charles works with soluble pigments and sheets of plexiglass to create light, illusive abstractions. Memory Screen is her first solo exhibition of a series with a single focus. The series explores a process that is both as elusive and delicate as our memory. Each work is composed of multiple layers and with each layer Charles tries to find transparency and depth, but ultimately surrenders to the fluidity of the paint. Her process is slow and deliberate leaving room for the unexpected as her medium does not allow for absolute control of the outcome. With great care and patience, the artist often works on multiple layers simultaneously waiting for each to dry for extended periods before they are assembled. The final piece is never obvious to her; putting the layers together is like building a puzzle. In working on Memory Screen the artist reflected on some of the most poignant memories she has collected, trying to assemble their colours, shapes and emotions into this body of work.
