about the artist
Nicole Clouston received her MFA from the University of Victoria and is currently completing her PhD in Visual Arts at York University. In her practice, Nicole explores the beauty of chemical and biological processes, as well as the value that can be found in these experiments when their ability to communicate specific information is stripped away, by using scientific techniques as artistic medium in her sculptural work (such as thin layer chromatography, DNA-electrophoresis as well as bacterial culturing). Nicole has exhibited her work across Canada in Victoria, Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal. Nicole was awarded a SSHRC Canada Graduate Research Scholarship and was the recipient of the Anne Lazare-Mirvish Award as well as the Robert S. & Muriel A. Raguin Graduate Scholarship.
