born 1990 in Ottawa - lives and works in Montréal, QC
Nicole Crozier obtained a Bachelors of Fine Arts from University of Ottawa (2013) and is currently pursuing a Masters of Fine Arts at Concordia University in Painting and Drawing.
Inspired by fashion and its potential for (self) transformation, Crozier explores the animate potential of accessories and decoration in relation to the female body. Her surrealistic paintings often depict ornamentation taking on an insidious purpose, often consuming the figure and eclipsing its humanity. In her practice, Cozier aims to cultivate an aesthetic that is simultaneously seductive and unsettling as a means of investigating the overlap between desire, fantasy, identity, and self-image.
She has showcased her work at Nuit Blanche Toronto, St. Brigid’s Centre for the Arts, and Cambridge Art Galleries, among others.
