Nicola Nemec lives and works on the North Coast of Co. Antrim.

Born in Belfast in 1972, she has exhibited extensively across the UK and Ireland.

Her paintings convey an intimate knowledge and continual observation of, the shifting climate, light and atmosphere of the landscape in which she lives. She is interested in the contrast between the distinctive man-made and natural forms within her environment. The local harbours, bog lands, mountains and seascapes are recurring features in the work.

Her practice involves exploring the physical qualities of her chosen media. The spontaneous nature of fluid paint is exploited for its ability to create form organically. Paint is often applied and partially removed achieving subtlety of tone and texture. Her process of painting allows her to revisit a specific ‘site’ or a ‘sense of place’, layering memories and paint to create depth akin to the layering of the landscape itself.

‘Nicola Nemec’s work does not just correspond to one particular place, but a number of related places. Her work is as much about an emotional site as a geographical site, and it is both objective and subjective simultaneously. Her creative process operates between memory, intuition, intellect and the physical reality of the painting. It evokes a powerful sense of the experience of the landscape, where deep understanding exists’ (Dr Susan Liggett. Head of the Media Art and Design Research Centre, Glyndwr University)
