This sculpture is one of a series of sculptures on the theme of Vessels I have been working on this year (2018). Part of the stone is left untouched to contrast between the polished stone and the natural. This cloudy alabaster has interesting opaque markings which indicate a very high heat when the gypsum was formed thousands of years ago. It sits on a black honed granite base.

Nicola Beattie

Nicola studied both Painting and Sculpture at Exeter College of Art and Design; she then went on to specialize in Sculpture at Wimbledon College of Art in London, gaining a BA Hons degree in Fine Art Sculpture. She makes large indoor pieces in plaster to be cast in bronze, alongside carving in alabaster and polyphant stone. She also paints large canvases when exploring a theme further in 2D. Since 2013  Nicola has been working on a series of sculptures and paintings inspired by God and water baptism focusing on water and light. The sculptures consist of a number of stone and alabaster sculptures as well as several large plaster sculptures based on a water drop form to be cast in bronze. The paintings are mainly medium to large and painted in acrylics and oils, focusing on light and texture, similar to the sculptures. Her work has been exhibited both abroad and throughout the UK. London exhibitions and galleries include: The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Mall Galleries, The Menier Gallery, Sotheby’s Art Gallery, The Gallery and Gallery 27 Cork Street. Alongside exhibiting, Nicola has completed a number of contemporary art commissions for both private and corporate clients in the UK, her work is also held in collections in Germany, Turkey, Poland, Hungary, Singapore, the Caribbean and Australia.
