NEEOCO-Nicole Westbrook

 
Goderich/Ontario (Canada)

Artist's Statement

It’s the sensation you are up far too high and far too close to an edge.  Anxious perhaps but an undoubting presence of physical excitement channeled at the possibility of what could be.  I get this feeling when beginning an artwork. 

I devote months into each artwork in hopes of embodying enough detail, historical accuracy, and layered colour.  Each detail is the intent of the hand.  Armed with small brushes adorned with few hairs I will sit and paint, entranced.  I aspire to depict the many expressions of human and animal behaviours within the settings of alternate time and space.  Historical or fantasized within the constraints of my own studies and current skillset.  In the medium of watercolour.  Producing detailed artworks that hide in such a way that you suddenly notice more.

Born and rurally raised on my family farm in Ontario Canada. I found the solitude a blessing. Exploring nature, animals, and creative outlets. To this day my artwork blossoms in the night when the world feels more secluded.  I am a self-taught artist with a degree in political science and philosophy.

"The Baltimore"

Watercolour

Inspired by London England’s Kit-Cat Club (1920s) which opened in the summer of 1925 and immediately blossomed into the most famous nocturnal haunts in London.  The club was furnished with top of the line restaurant and dance floor equipment, dubbed the most luxurious resort in Europe, and was the only club in London built expressively for the purpose of a club.  It was situated in the heart of the West End, in the basement of the Capitol Theatre with a main entrance on the Haymarket.  It is believed the venue was ultimately destroyed in a bombing raid during WWII.

The dresses were inspired by 1920s advertisements and dress patterns.  Then reimagined and redesigned to be fitted onto modeled bodies.
