Bio

Lo stile di Nicky Hoberman è un misto di fotorealismo e caricatura, figure illogiche poste su sfondi piatti e interpretabili solo attraverso i loro vestiti, le espressioni e le pose. Riconosciuta per la sua indagine sul concetto di isolamento, identità e individualismo attraverso l'arte, venne selezionata nel 1996 per la mostra New Contemporaries presso la Tate Liverpool e inclusa nella mostra New Neurotic Realists presso la Galleria Saatchi. Vive e lavora a Londra. Ha partecipato ad alcune collettive presso il MoCa di Chicago e Sydney, la Melbourne National Gallery of Victoria e la galleria Magasin 3, Stoccolma.

Nicky Hoberman's style is a mixture of photorealism and caricature, illogical figures contrasted against even and
flat backgrounds interpreted only through their clothes, expressions, and poses. She is famous for her effective investigation of the concepts of isolation, identity, and individuality through her art. She lives and works in London. She was selected for the 1996 New Contemporaries at Tate Liverpool and included in Saatchi's New Neurotic Realists. She has been in group shows at the Chicago MoCA, Sydney MoCA, Melbourne National Gallery of Victoria and Magasin 3, Stockholm.
