Nicole Uzzell

Experimentation and a mix of humble materials, primarily paper, guide my sculptural forms. The process applied is laborious, repetitious and part alchemist / part witches brew. Environmental concerns and women’s issues are central to my practice. Being a hunter/gatherer in both urban and rural settings, it provides me with a strong connection to the materials and place. Oscillating between strength and fragility, nature and industry, decay and beauty, — my artwork contains skilled-craftsmanship and the reckless abandonment of allowing the materials to shape the outcome.
