Watching Sheila Nicolin’s surrealistic and colorful illustrations gives the impression to be a witness of a daily life scene scene, taken straight from life. In some of her pieces, a sense of intimacy with the depicted subjects can be felt sometime. And it is part of her artistic process. As a painter, Nicolin explores the very human struggle to find intimate connection. Narrated from a naive and voyeuristic perspective, sheila’s paintings create surrealist glimpses into authentic and vulnerable experiences surrounding loneliness, mental illness and desire.
