Nicola Voss is a Los Angeles based visual artist who works in a range of media including painting, drawing, and sculptural assemblage. Her art illustrates the ordering and categorizing of the human experience, the life trajectory from birth to death and the roles that are assumed/chosen/assigned to signify a place in that landscape. Working primarily in a small intimate scale, her work investigates gestures of affection, deep melancholy and grief, to acts of frustration and rage – the desire for uniqueness, the ultimate realization of sameness. Her work has been exhibited in San Francisco and in Los Angeles. She studied in London, England, at Richmond upon Thames College where she earned a Design and Art Technology Diploma, and at CalArts in Valencia, California, where she received both her BFA and MFA in Art and was awarded the Georgia and Les Clark Scholarship, the Lew and Edie Wasserman Scholarship, and a James Irvine Foundation Scholarship.
