Nicole Jenny's signature images are solitary ascents into space. The moon holds a special fascination and often represents a destination in her work and this classic example shows the moon as the ending to an unidentifiable tunnel which envelopes the canvas in this picture.
My favourite of the ‘entity’ series in traditional proportions, this painting is somehow the energetic truth of family. Different shapes and energy packages are forming and dying all at the same time, with some overlapping and others just hiding in corners. Everything is in flux and everything is unexpected. This piece has been painstakingly created over one of Nicole’s signature backgrounds and her originality and magic as an artist really does get to shine through here.
Early stages of Hole in the Fence
Anyone who has read any of the great metaphysical novels, such as Casteneda’s series, will immediately feel a draw to ‘The Spiral of Time.’ More than just a divinely beautiful picture, it is a dizzying vision into the astral plane and the bottomless nature of the universe our astral bodies inhabit.
As though I'm peering into an actual wormhole of delightful, kaleidoscopic visuals, this piece leapt out at me as being a fiesta of attractive, enticing, and absorbing colour, functioning as a
In Spiral, the colours are applied thickly with a brush. The vortex geometry and diminishing brushstroke size suggests depth while the even brightness and surface texture pull us back to the materiality of the surface. The image reminds one of photos of the interior of the CERN Hadron collider, a far-off galaxy or an illustration of the distortion around a black hole.
This moody piece is a little abstract, but still accessible to all. Beautifully capturing the way water can interact with light and giving it a post modern twist, this picture is a great introduction to how abstraction can remain aesthetic. The simple subject matter allows the final effect to be almost impressionist as we can all can clearly see how it resembles an every day experience.
An explosion in colour and originality, this sea-life fantasy landscape is a great talking point as well as being a picture capable of enlivening or brightening the mood of any room
Somewhere between Van Doesburg, Damien Hurst and Kandinsky, this piece is nothing less than sensational. The duality of the perpendicular events and swirling whirlpool in which they float is truly a spectacle to behold.
This is a very difficult work to try and describe and I think that, for me, this is at the heart of it’s success. It is instantly unfathomable and likeable at the same time. Nicole Jenny at her best; not trying to do anything other than let the paint do what it wants to do at that moment. Not beautiful because it was trying to capture beauty, but because beauty was a part of that moment, right then.
This beautiful piece is exquisite in both proportion and colour. A real marvel of unreal gentility, it is almost impossible to imagine how it was created. Symbolic of our conscious selves in a fast moving world or an immaterial universe, Entities is both a true postmodern aesthetic and a meaningful artistic piece.
Everybody loves candy, and I love this. It is a composition whose pieces and elements seem so simple and few in isolation, and yet how beautifully and lovingly it has been placed and assembled means it draws you in and plays gently with your senses, before placing you, gently back down once more, so that you may continue on your merrier way.
