Artist Eva Nicolait’s large-scale, abstract, and figurative paintings will be on show at FOMA from June 3-24.
“I PRACTICE IN FIGURATION AND ABSTRACTION. The tensions of space, balance, and color are the basic elements of painting that I pursue in both forms, particularly as these relationships provide areas of confinement, safety, conflict, and provocation in both abstraction and figuration. The line is a very powerful component for me in both practices because the intuition of skilled hands can reveal what the mind and heart are up to, often before we know ourselves. I use these elements to explore the language of painting and emotions.”
