As a multidisciplinary artist, Nicole Boyce uses a combination of digital techniques, paper collage, sculpture, and photography to explore the relationship between reality and representation. Her work reflects her fascination with the gap between the way we perceive the world and how we depict it, investigating both the natural and artificial through a lens of evolution and phenomena. Through this investigation, she has developed a unique visual language that blends forms found in both the natural and manmade world. Her creative process is driven by the theme of interpretation. Nicole draws inspiration from her references while also reinvigorating and reimagining parts of the work, producing a new version of the original concept with each iteration. The resulting imagery features overlapping shapes, dynamic shadows, and rich colors that create a sense of optical illusion and a Trompe-l’œil effect, inviting the viewer to enter into a space of contemplation. In her work, Nicole aims to invite the viewer to consider the world around them in a new light and to engage with the themes of representation, illusion, and the interconnectedness of the natural and artificial.
