About this Curation

Erin has selected a number of pieces depicting various aspects of urban life. "That is what I'm currently creating, so I'm automatically more drawn to those images at the moment," says Erin.

"My taste in art has always been really varied," says Erin. "I love both photo realism and impressionism. I've always preferred oil paintings, but my love for watercolours is growing now that I've been seeing so many great artworks by artists such as Richard Chao. Richard's works are soft, detailed and beautiful. My other favourite Bluethumb artists are Peter Roccella, who has really somber, moody landscape scenes, Logan Moody, who creates amazingly detailed stencil artworks, and Pauline Bailey, whose colourful, urban artworks are really fun, focusing on the small designs in buildings in a way that makes them look almost two-dimensional."

About the Curator

Erin Nicholls is a featured artist on Bluethumb. Erin has been practicing art since the days of her childhood in country Victoria. Since then, she has travelled extensively in a number of different cities and countries and continued her studies in art at a tertiary level.

Erin’s art practice has changed from oil paintings to marker and pencil illustrations over the course of her career. The scenes that Erin paints, which are mostly set in Japan, are reminiscent of Studio Ghibli-style animations, as well as traditional Japanese woodblock prints.
