Nicola Semmens

Put down your iphones and find your own rabbit hole! Whimsy and serendipity are explored in chance meetings between found objects displayed on a surrealist like stage. I encourage and cajole the viewer to see the world ‘Alice like’ in order to find themselves in an imagined portal into another world.

As a realist painter, my works offer a contemporary take on traditional painting themes, adding twists and turns in order to create subtle surrealist distortions.

The ancient Greek traditions of trompe-l’oeil also inspire and puzzle the imagination. And with these themes I hope to inspire the viewer to take a visual and imagined adventure to see the world ‘through the looking glass’ of wonderment.
