Nicole Daniah Sidonie Artist Bio:
I am a Toronto-based artist whose inspirations are inseparably linked to the human figure. As a visual artist, I am readily drawn to a variety of subjects but the figure plays a prominent role in my creative processes. It has been an integral part of my professional development from my time as a fitness trainer and as a dancer and choreographer. Prior to this, I photographed people and developed an insatiable appetite for it in the years that followed my career in dance. Advances in digital photography opened up all sorts of creative possibilities ultimately inspiring me to learn to draw and paint in order to improve my editing capabilities. Not long after, I exchanged my camera for paint brushes and now I paint imagined people and, on occasion, real ones too. The subjects I choose to paint exist in me in some form of ambiguous or repressed emotion or from a place of empathy or familiarity. Through them, I gain valuable insight into myself —a kind of resolution into my feelings about a particular experience or an unresolved emotion though this is rarely ever apparent to me at the time of creation. I have learned to place trust in this approach and believe in my motivation. I record a moment, a feeling and leave room for the viewer to experience and inhabit the painting. There, they can interpret the nature of things and connect with the mood, character or circumstance of the subject and in doing so the painting speaks.
