Nicole Finger

15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Nicole Finger

United States

Nicole Finger paints closely cropped, larger-than-life oil portraits frequently using her own children as muses. There is an obvious and palpable connection occuring through the direct eye contact which commands the viewer to engage, while thinly obscured by a filter of veils, sunglasses or lights. This visual barrier creates a sense of push and pull both physically and metaphorically reflecting the emotional states of the subjects on the cusp of adulthood; a mystery and vibrating energy of what is to come.
