Nicki Rolls artwork statement/cv news









I will be showing paintings and my Forest was Alive video installation at Air Gallery, Manchester in April/May. The exhibition, Merry-Go-Round Broke Down, shows works from 7 artists and explores the concept of 'Toon-Culture' in contemporary art.

I am continuing to collaborate under the umbrella group, Drawing Connections, a group of 22 artists who have chosen to work collaboratively through the medium of drawing as a way to challenge their practice and broaden their understanding of what contemporary drawing can be. We are making new experimental work which will be shown at Brighton Fringe Festival in May: Drawing Connections by the Sea.
