Quarantine - New Paintings by Nicole Tijoux

Byron Bay From 24 June to 30 September 2020

Presentation
While living in London, artist Nicole Tijoux found herself in lockdown and she shares with us her thoughts about the works she has created in this challenging period.

"Isolation and silence are the words coming up in my mind when I think about and look at the new paintings that I have been working in this quarantine. The deformation of the swimmer is now placed in a different water, more colorful, with other kind of light. This new environment come from dreams that I had, possible places with another climate (not the one that we know) and with another light.

I use some of my photos as a reference to create this new paintings, especially the ones when the light and its reflections on the surface of the water activates our ways of seeing in many different forms: the sunlight bouncing incandescently leaving you dazzled, human figures merging with the sea until they almost disappear, pool or dense aqueous medium dissolving such figures into fragments. This references I try to transform in colorful and saturated paintings, maybe trying to make some visual noise as a reply to the silence of this isolation."
