Nicole Coson

Overview

She creates works that seek to stretch and skew the viewer's ability to detect cultural precursors as identity and location blend into seamlessness constructing a space which is both familiar and alien.

Nicole Coson (b. 1992, Manila, lives and works in the UK) is a Filipino artist, who has recently completed an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art in London. She has been selected as part of Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2020. 

 

Coson's work operates between the anonymous and deeply personal, between a specific place in her personal history and anywhere at all. She creates works that seek to stretch and skew the viewer's ability to detect cultural precursors as identity and location blend into seamlessness constructing a space which is both familiar and alien. Her latest works function as architectural interventions of physical space, each work serving as a doorway into a dimension between worlds and beyond time.
