The Art of Transformation
The cusp of perfection and imperfection in the theme of the work of artist Nicolette Bénard. This is a theme one finds in her jewellery as well as in her latest project ‘Project B’, a series of wall objects in plexiglass.
In Project B. Nicolette investigates a doll position as an icon of beauty – the sum of the perfect, indulgent women and men – and asks: is it ideal beauty or false idealism? Her works are constructed by recycling nostalgic material with sense of colors and artistic craftsmanship. Each work is unique and iconic. With a wink and a healthy dose of humor, Nicolette works on her icons and transforms them to…..yes, to what exactly?
