Wall Space Gallery is thrilled to host the latest exhibition of Ottawa painter Nicole Allen. Allen's floral canvases brim with energy. Her tangles, interruptions, and punctuations of pigment are emblematic of the ebbs and flows of our inner life. Allen's specialization in floral still life allows her to revisit a timeless subject steeped in connotations of fleeting vitality, growth, abundance, and decay.
Happy Amidst the Chaos, acrylic and mixed media on canvas, 36 x 24 in.
We look forward to welcoming you to the gallery for Nicole Allen's solo exhibition. For inquiries, please contact the gallery at firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-729-0003.
Born in Oakville, Ontario, Nicole Allen developed an early appreciation for painting the Canadian landscape from her father. Nicole has an undergraduate degree in Art History from Queen’s University, and an honours diploma in Applied Museum Studies from Algonquin College. After working in the Art Rental and Sales industry in Victoria, BC, Nicole and her husband Jeff settled in Ottawa in 1997. They have two wonderful teenaged kids. Over the years, Nicole has consistently developed her painting and figurative skills through her studies at the Ottawa School of Art and local art groups.
In 2010, Nicole began exhibiting her work in the Ottawa region and now paints full time at her studio, as a member of The Loft artists collective. She is currently represented by Wall Space Gallery in Ottawa, in2art gallery in Oakville, and Canvas Gallery in Toronto. She also loves exhibiting her work at art fairs throughout Ontario. Her paintings are held in private collections across Canada, the United States, and Europe.
