New Orleans artist Nicole Charbonnet creates large-scale, mixed-media works that reference images common to the American psyche and culture.
Throughout a blossoming career, which thus far includes international solo exhibitions and a grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Nicole Charbonnet has created large-scale, mixed-media works that reference images common to the American psyche and culture. Using base images ranging from flowers to comic-book superheroes to animals, Charbonnet’s works—typically acrylic and mixed media on canvas—develop over a long period of time, in a repeating process of addition and subtraction, until layers of manipulated images, textures, chalky washes, fabrics, and translucent paper together evoke memories in the viewer.
