NEEOCO

Beyond Borders: an Exhibition of Fine Art From Canada
October 10 - October 30, 2014
Reception: Thursday October 16, 2014 6-8 PM

Intricate, detailed, and impressive, NEEOCO’s watercolors push the accepted limits of the medium. NEEOCO depicts story-based scenes with an exceptional sense of time and place – the kind of grand work usually done by epic or history oil painters. In fact the paintings, which vary widely in subject matter, are inspired by real life practices and events that the artist has discovered through study and travel. One work depicts a group of native Greek shepherds, flocks in tow, dwarfed by a precise reproduction of the Pindus mountains. Another shows members of the Xhosa tribe, their stunning yellow garments richly observed, under the vast South African sky. The paintings’ high, unromantic realism is achieved via meticulousness; as NEEOCO herself says, “Accomplishment is met when an artwork embodies enough detail to hinder an individual from taking it all in during one sitting.” She uses a brush with only a few bristles, adding each detail with meticulous care.

Born Nicole Westbrook, NEEOCO is Canadian and currently lives in Goderich, Ontario. She also works in alabaster carving and will soon move into bronze sculpture.
