Nicole Packard

Artist Statement

I grew up in a family that valued imagination; creating something that lives in the intangible world was a part of my everyday life and has translated into my artwork. I am fascinated by the line between reality and fantasy, as well as the duality of beauty and destruction.  Much of my work deals with the idea of mapping and often these maps are of information not easily quantified like a memory or a dream. The interlacing of these opposing ideas allows for the development of a more complex and visually rich environment.
