"I create surreal dreamscapes that fall outside the confines of standard reality."
“Nicole Gordon is a Chicago-based artist whose paintings draw on images from highly stylized scenic art, such as 19th century French wallpaper, and Medieval and Renaissance landscapes, to create anachronistic and often whimsical paintings with bright and vibrant colors. Her work is often mixed media, combining oil painting and encaustic techniques with more traditionally craft-associated materials such as glitter, and often incorporates installed sculptures that extend the paintings into the viewer's space.
She is currently represented by the Peter Miller gallery in Chicago, and has work at the Spertus Museum in Chicago. In addition, she has produced public artworks for the Chicago Transit Authority and New England Biolabs. In 2002, she was awarded Best in Show at the Rockford Art Museum Midwestern Biennial.”
