Nicola Nemec lives and works on the North Coast of Co. Antrim.
In 1994 while exhibiting at a National Graduate Exhibition, she was selected from several hundred students to win a free SPACE studio award in East London. Since then, she has had regular solo exhibitions in London, and has exhibited with many galleries across England and Ireland. Her work is included in public and private collections worldwide. Her paintings have been recently purchased by The Office of Public Works, and Ecotricity.
She has been made an Ambassador for the National ‘It’s Our World’ environmental Art project, and is an original member of the ‘Human Nature’ Art movement.
Her solo exhibition of 2002 was featured on BBC Newsline.
Her paintings convey her intimate knowledge of, and relationship with the shifting climate, light and atmosphere of the harbours, boglands and mountains of her environment. She continually explores the contrast between the distinctive manmade and natural forms within the landscape.
