Wheston’s “figurative paintings focus on the psychological aspects of our humanity, including all the foibles and eccentricities of our daily lives, as well as the relationships we have with each other, ourselves, our pets and our surroundings.” She frequently uses her own body as a model to explore private moments, aging and absurd situations. Wheston, from Salt Spring Island, B.C. has had numerous solo exhibitions in the US, Canada and the UK.
These paintings are a record of the stuff we have, what surrounds us, what we use and see in our everyday lives. Objects are the record of past and present lives. Will this age of consumerism also become a thing of the past?”
“Through my figurative painting, I explore relationships, boundaries and interpersonal connections.” - Nicola Wheston
