Probing the intersection of politics and ecology Nicola Moss' collaged works highlight the importance of green spaces amid congested urban environments. Relying on an archive of papers coloured using paint, graphite, printmaking and various stains, Moss' materials travel with her as she explores the physical landscape. Framing nature as a source rather than a resource the artist highlights how intrinsic sustainable green spaces are to our well-being, both physical and mental.
Nicola Moss has exhibited throughout Australia, and in Japan, Sweden and the USA since beginning her professional practice in 2006. Moss was awarded the Moreton Bay Region Art Award (2012) and has been a finalist in numerous awards including the John Leslie Art Prize (2020), Fisher’s Ghost Art Award (2019), the STILL: National Still Life Award (2019) and the Sunshine Coast Art Prize (2018, 2017, 2014). Her work is held in many important collections including that of the Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, Redland Art Gallery Collection and Mater Hospitals, Brisbane.
