26 Collective Resident - Kay Nicolson

Welcome to Kay Nicolson!

Kay says:

Having been brought up with a great respect and reverence for the natural world, my creative practice has always referenced man’s delicate relationship with animals.

Predominantly, my focus rests on our society’s compulsion to objectify and identify with animals.

Given the recent surge in creatures being bred in miniature form for domestication, my current works aim to investigate why it is we in the Western world are intent on bringing animals in to our homes, the characters we place upon them, and what the long-term effects might be on our relationship with the natural world.
