Nicola Moss
Greenspace

2 February – 2 March 2019

February 2019 heralds the inaugural exhibition for Onespace by artist Nicola Moss. Moss brings her City and Nature project to the gallery, examining a changing ecology – a place where town planning, heritage and personal aesthetic, mixes with maintenance regimes and sense of well-being. Greenspace explores the inner-city Brisbane suburbs of postcode 4101 – South Brisbane, West End and Highgate Hill. The work shares in local discussion, melding stories of the varied roles of greenery in our urban areas. Moss’ art practice explores the value of a healthy environment to communities and individuals, with a particular focus on the sense of well-being contact with plants can provide in our everyday lives. Her paper-based works resonate with ideas around themes of identity, lifestyle and sustainability. Ultimately her investigation asks: What value do plants and green space provide in our everyday lives? What may the future of green space in Brisbane look like?
