Artist's Statement

Nicole Patrice Dul examines social geography through printmaking, painting and mixed media. She seeks to open dialogue about common human experiences regarding home, place and national identity. In her current work, she uses the effects of layering, weathering and transforming print media, converging texture and representational imagery to evoke intense moments of troubled atmosphere and suspense. Nicole’s expressive mixed media prints take the form of haunted panoramas of institutional and domestic buildings or other edifices: spaces that retain boundaries yet command interactions between life and death, past and present.
