Nicola Moss is an Australian artist engaging people in considering the value of healthy environment. Her collaged works highlight the importance of green spaces amid congested urban environments. Relying on an archive of papers coloured using paint, graphite, printmaking and various stains, Moss' materials travel with her as she explores the physical landscape. Framing nature as a source rather than a resource, the artist highlights how intrinsic sustainable green spaces are to our well-being, both physical and mental.
Nicola Moss has exhibited throughout Australia; in Japan, Sweden and the USA since beginning her professional practice in 2006. Moss was awarded the Moreton Bay Region Art Award (2012) and HOTA Gallery Commission (2020). She has been a finalist in numerous awards including the Len Fox Painting Prize, John Leslie Art Prize, Fisher’s Ghost Art Award, the STILL: National Still Life Award, Gold Coast Art Prize, Geelong Contemporary Art Award, Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize, Libris Awards and the Sunshine Coast Art Prize. Her work is held in several collections including that of HOTA Gallery Gold Coast, Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, Moreton Bay Region Art Collection and Redland Art Gallery.
