1 – 30 July 2011
An exhibition by Nicky Higgs. Her artwork is directly inspired by the coastal landscape of West Wirral. She is interested in the abstract qualities of the view across the Dee to Hilbre Island and North Wales, how the water, land and sky form stripes of different colours, tones and textures according to the ever changing weather.
Her beachcombing habits have led her to create collages that combine painting fragments with found objects. She uses watered down acrylic with white emulsion to make her paintings.
Nicky is currently a part-time Lecturer in Art and Design at Wirral Metropolitan College.
