Candace Nicol: A fusion between printmaking, painting, and digital photography

A Native Nevadan, Nicol has used the male figure, photographed and digitally manipulated, as a means of formulating a response to her experiences in Nevada’s often contradictory landscapes of desire. Nicol’s work has been described as a fusion between printmaking, painting, and digital photography. As a result, Nicol’s multilayered compositions posit engaging questions to viewers regarding relationships, social identities, and societal issues surrounding the female gaze.
