Born in South London in 1978, Nicole Mollett graduated from Middlesex University in 2000, and completed an MFA in Fine Art at the Slade School of Art in 2002. She is an Artist, Curator and Writer.
Nicole Mollett multifaceted practice traverses drawing, painting, sculpture, installation and performance, all part of an on-going compulsion to realise her ideas. She draws imagined realities which are compositions using images from early encyclopaedias together with photographs and found objects. Her work is visually rich in detail, influenced by 18th century art, Germanic culture and the baroque. The subject matter of her work often celebrates alternative histories and forgotten places.
Nicole is interested in public art and the role culture plays in communities. What happens when art is created outside of the gallery context? She has worked as lead artist in several regeneration projects, actively promoting a more community-focused democratic approach to commissioning work. Nicole has collaborated with many artists and writers, to make multi-perspective site specific responses to people and places.
