Felicity Nove

Felicity Nove’s creations use poured paint that allow colors to flow and mix naturally. The Australian artist says her fluid paintings spill over and collide in much the same way that humans do with nature, and her art is meant to question how we can live sustainably within the environment. Nove creates her masterpieces on sustainably farmed Gessoboard, and she uses only recycled aluminum stretches. She says her interest in the environment comes from her father, an artist and engineer who designs sustainable energy schemes.
