Nicole Koch

(b France 1958) Studied at Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Appliques Paris XV eme Ateliers de gravure Paris - London. Lives and works in France. Nicole’s paintings evolve from a lengthy process of working layer upon layer; scraping, erasing, uncovering. She explores the paint itself. Nicole talks of her investigations seeking a new vocabulary of signs and images “... that lead to new enigmas to elucidate, a poetic promenade to question and approach the inner world.” Inspiration is often found in mythology and poetry.

Nicole works mainly with oil on paper, adding colour pigments for the smooth texture and its transparency. Scale of works varies widely from small vignettes to large pieces where the paper is applied to canvas.
