Nicole Galluccio has a BFA in Studio Art/Painting from Florida Atlantic University and has been painting for 19 years now. Her style is clearly unique and she feels grateful to have opportunities to share it within the local art community. Over the years, many people have relayed that her work makes them feel happy and has an energizing effect. She feels that may stem from her own enthusiasm shining through in her creative work.

 

 

The management at South Shores is launching a series of 6 week SOLO exhibitions by a number of local artists in the Lake Worth Community.   There will be a Fundraiser, as Nicole will be raffling an original 20″ x 20″ piece of art with 100% of the proceeds to benefit a local charity, Blooming With Autism. They assist families by providing grants to families whose children need therapies not covered by insurance, such as art and music therapy.

Nicole shares, “I find inspiration for my floral pieces from nature as well as vintage fabrics.  I spin them into a heavily exaggerated illustrative pop version. Often my work evolves through the process and takes on a slightly different direction than initially planned. I can be influenced by a new vibrant fabric I have found, where I can employ certain color combinations that intrigue me. Color theory was always my favorite class, I actually enjoyed mixing every shade of grey known to mankind and it is the one class I can say that has truly lent to my constantly evolving color palette”.

She explains, “After graduating in 1998, I needed to find better ways to hone my personal style plus create depth and contrast to my more flat illustrative works. In school, I had dabbled in using different media including paper and textural pieces. I utilized the definitive contrast of a black and white background against the vibrant colors. I have always been fascinated with the outrageous headlines in tabloid magazines.  I felt what better use of the exploitation of celebrity and America’s obsession with it!  In turn, I contrast it against something so beautiful in nature vs. something so, well garish and absurd, in our culture. Something beautiful, vibrant and inviting vs. something dark, which we are drawn to as a culture as the background. Along the way, I started filtering in some headlines and wording that struck me in positive ways as well”.

Nicole tells The Rickie Report, “My process is constantly in transition.   I create to evoke emotion (hopefully positive), sometimes a laugh  and sometimes deeper thought provocation. I maintain my creativity level by exposing myself to art as much as possible, networking with other artists, and exploring our local art scene and the world around me. We have so many interesting artists in our local art scene and everybody has a story….that keeps me engaged…like minded people give me inspiration”.
