BIO: Nicki Heenan


Born in London, Nicki Heenan moved to New-Zealand as a child where later she studied Microbiology, Art and Music. These areas of learning have formed an integral part of her work as an artist where the experimental methods of science are combined with an abstract visualisation of the landscape.


Nicki’s paintings are very much influenced by surface and substance. Colour is rendered in multi dimensional soft layers with transparent and translucent glazing. Nicki works in oil, cold wax, acrylic and watercolour. ‘Nature is at the very heart of my paintings and provides the ever changing muse. Photography also plays a keen role in my work’.


Artist Statement - Human interaction with the landscape through the creation of ancient ritual monuments and the shaping of physical geography of the land is a legacy of intervention which forms the reality in which we live. By observing and questioning the manifestations of these activities, we reveal something of ourselves within the context of our surroundings from both the past and the present.
