Art by Nicole Williford
Size: 3” x 5”
Medium: Oil on canvas
Statement: I often feel that crisp, photorealistic paintings are not an honest communication of life. Within my blurred portraits, I explore the subject’s internal paradoxes, their malleability and my own flawed and momentary understanding of them.
