The starting point for Nikki’s work is the commonplace, and often overlooked, the discarded, the industrial and “un-aesthetic”. Her challenge is to integrate these elements into a cohesive whole. She is interested in the properties of the materials that she incorporates and the associations they evoke. Nikki’s appreciation of texture is evident in her work in which she also incorporates found objects, particularly from the everyday domestic realm, with paint and collage. Nikki's choice of materials is based on practical considerations (they are cheap and readily available) but by recycling and re-using, there is also an inherent challenge to the “ throwaway”, consumerist society.
