Nicole Collins

Nicole Collins Biography


Since the late 1980’s Toronto-based artist Nicole Collins has produced an extensive body of work that encompasses the effects and subsequent affect, of time, memory, accumulation, force and heat on visceral and ephemeral materials, especially through painting with encaustic, the application of molten pigment-infused wax. Themes of mortality, grief, commemoration, and resilience have most recently emerged in the solo exhibition Furthest Boundless at the Koffler Centre of the Arts in 2018. This engagement with the mutable and receptive nature of wax has led to investigations beyond the canvas including performative drawing, digital reproduction, installation, intervention, video, and sound. Solo exhibitions include: The Art Gallery of Ontario (2013), The University of Waterloo Art Gallery (2013) and The Embassy of Canada in Tokyo (2001) and group exhibitions in Toronto, Hamilton, St. Johns, New York, Miami, Queensland, London and Zurich. Publications include: Abstract Painting in Canada (Roald Nasgaard), the 3rd edition of A Concise History of Canadian Painting (Dennis Reid), Carte Blanche, Volume 2: Painting, and The Donovan Collection Catalogue. Collins is Associate Professor of Material and Visual Culture in Drawing & Painting at the Ontario College of Art & Design University.
