Image: Nicole Foreshew, Studio, Morocco, 2017.
Nicole Foreshew is a contemporary artist and member of the Wiradjuri nation, Central West NSW, working across an ambitious array of materials and processes. Formed from a recent residency in Morocco, this new body of new work furthers Foreshew’s profound connection to her Country and intense explorations of material agency.
Sensitive to the physical implications of social, cultural and economic practices, Foreshew presents objects as directly influenced by the intimate performances of human and non-human activity. Objects speak of familial relationships, geological formations, and transformations from one organic state to another. Referencing the institutional ‘artefact’ and forming comparisons between ceremony and everyday use, Foreshew’s work brings to light the often overlooked interactions of sand, fire and time.
