Nicole Katsuras received her MFA from Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in the United Kingdom. She graduated with an Honors BFA from the University of Toronto. She has exhibited in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, London, Seoul and Paris. Her work is included in private and public collections in North America and Europe.
Katsuras’ work is deeply rooted in the history of painting, re-imaging moments from the canon of art history and is interested in expanding the boundaries of “Post-Abstract” painting. Her paintings pose questions about our Western psyche – our associations with the sublime, excess, disaster, and the ideal. Katsuras embraces past traditions in art but forages a new vocabulary for her own creative endeavors. Her work is composed of a variation of knife, brush, and irregular mark making made with a combination of strange and unconventional tools to create thick, boldly coloured paintings.
