Presence

Presence

Nicola Donaldson

Presence can take many forms and my practice aims to expose this through the exploration of material. Manipulating common items such as fabric and hair, which are seen and used within all cultures, to create an assemblage of presence that translates the need of reassurance and an otherworldly presence. My structures are abstract forms that almost take on a human role through their shape, size and the materials, which they are made from. Allowing the viewer to feel at ease as they are confronted with familiarity of the chosen medium but also to consider their presence and others around them.
