“The transformation of naturalistic environments with the co-existence of man-made constructions is an ongoing investigation in my work.” N Styan 2019
Nicola’s screenprints document constructions in environmental conditions. In her images, naturalistic elements can co-exist with an artificial spectacle of the man-made environment. Her most recent screen prints reflect this through the use of vibrant colour and abstract form.
