Smart and Sassy

More tiny art...Nicole Maloof's work just arrived! She will be exhibiting a small series of drawings and one painting inspired by Vladimir Nabokov's Ada or Ardor, A Family Chronicle.

"The drawings retain their own independent story but draw elements from Nabokov's novel such as forbidden love, an obsession with the natural world, and innocense...After the seed of influence was planted, separate stories evolved and when combined with absurdity the imagery became its own entity."

Nicole was born in 1983 in Seoul, South Korea. She received her BFA with a concentration in Painting and her BA with a concentration in Chemistry from Boston University in 2006. She first exhibited her work at Three Graces in the original Teeny Tiny Art Show this past September.
