NICOLA SCOTT

Ocular Drift

18 September - 17 October 2020

Ocular Drift is an exhibition of new works by Brisbane based artist Nicola Scott that explores the ambiguity and illusory nature of visual perception.

By combining smooth gradients and more loosely applied surfaces with geometric shapes, Scott’s recent works emerge through a build-up of layering, blending and masking. Each layer retains an autonomy, holding its own weight and sensation within the lively spaces created. Drawing on a playful internal logic, each new layer responds to and interrupts the forms and tones beneath. The resulting surface is a matrix of isolated yet interconnected portals, one that entices and tantalises the eye.
