Curated by Sidney Pink

John Fonda Gallery at Theatre Project
45 West Preston St.
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 4, 6:30-8:00pm
On View June 4 - July 12

John Fonda Gallery is please to present Nicole Shiflet’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. Titled Marching for Digits, the show consists of new paintings that explore Nicole’s fascination with interstitial moments that she documents into the fictional narratives of her paintings.

Shiflet’s paintings use bright color, simple organics forms, and detailed line work to create rich environments. Her work evokes scientific imagery and yet seems to exist inside fantastical landscapes, as if from a children’s book. She plays with the scale of her subject creating a duel sense of micro and macro.
