About the Artist
Nicole Jean McCorkell (b.1995, Hong Kong) uses painting as a recorder of totality. Her works are vividly chaotic, merging the figurative and the abstract. She derives inspiration from the sediments of everyday life, drawing from the words, objects, and textures of her environment. These external surroundings further serve as symbols and markers of emotion and memory, uninhibitedly projecting McCorkell’s internal landscape onto her canvas surfaces. Her works ultimately serve as veritable celebrations of life, truthfully exposing inevitable doubts, dilemmas, fantasies, and realities.
