Nicole Katsuras’ approach to painting is both historical and chimerical. Embracing various past traditions in art history but attempting to create a new vocabulary for her individual creative endeavors. The work is not image based. Rather, the material and her psyche operate in tandem to inform her work, to create “almost” still life, landscape or portraiture that can collapse into itself and transcend the inherent limits of pictures.
Nicole Katsuras studied at the University of Toronto and received her Honours Bachelor of Arts. Nicole continued her studies abroad and graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from University of London, Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in the United Kingdom. After completing her Masters in the UK, Nicole has returned to Toronto to work as a full-time painter. She has exhibited in Toronto, London, Seoul, and Paris. Her work is part of both private and public collections across North America and in Europe.
