Legs

The Legs Series explores our intimacy with others through proximity and touch, which is gained from love and familiarity rather then desire.  The paintings were influenced by Nikki’s experience as a mother and the closeness felt with her children in their uncomplicated youth.

‘When you have a child, so begins the braiding

And in that braid you stay’ (The Barrel, Aldous Harding)
