Artist Statement & Bio
Nicole Welch lives in regional NSW, in her hometown of Bathurst. Her in-situ LAND & BODY works explore personal, cultural and environmental histories, echoing the symbiotic relationship we have with an enduring natural world, and our ephemeral place within it. Welch’s process involves traversing through areas of bushland, where she locates significant locations to create her compositions using large-scale projectors, generators, research-inspired objects and in camera technologies. Recorded on location these installations result in incongruous photographic and moving image works that record at once both past and present ideologies.
Welch has been invited to show in numerous exhibitions nationally and most recently internationally. In 2019 Welch’s film Wildēornes Body was selected for the 5th International Motion Festival Cyprus. In 2018 she was a featured artist for ArtState NSW, making two new works, Transformation and Mementos. Welch’s works are held in the numerous public and private collections throughout Australia.
