NICOLLE ASTON - ARTIST
'Morning Light Clematis'
Hello and Welcome ...
Thanks for being here. I hope you are able to find a moment to slow down, take a breath, and enjoy what you see.
My art draws attention to nature - encouraging us to appreciate her diversity and offer her more than a passing glance.
Nature is the almighty backdrop to each of our lives.
As children we are enchanted by nature. in time she becomes familiar and less mysterious, and we can forget to marvel at her. When we live fast paced lives, lost in thought, addicted to digital devices, or in our momentum to be somewhere or to be someone,
we can find ourselves detached from nature’s miracles and magnificence.
During times of deep distress and human catastrophe survivors throughout time have told us they turned to nature for peace
and perspective. Regardless of the chaos we humans create for ourselves, birds continue to sing during pandemics,
daisies continue to bloom along prison fences, autumn leaves turn golden in war zones, and the spectacle of nature
continues on around us.
We can be uplifted by the beauty that surrounds us - even in the most ordinary of circumstances.
When all else has come and gone in our lives, nature is still there to comfort us.
I aim to bring the diverse beauty of nature into people's homes to remind them, even for a fleeting moment, that life is colourful, complex, layered, delicate ... and beautiful.
