About The Artwork

Dragonfruit Dreams 11 x 15" Mixed Media on Paper. 2021 This past summer, I worked on the painting series Queer Fruit. In the piece "Dragonfruit Dreams," I capture the feeling of a transformed, healed, and liberated body, one that embodies queer pride. The saturated and translucent pinks and opaque bold colours, speak to the powerful reclaiming agency that I hold over and within my body. By painting the interior of the body through an intuitive approach, I recover and connect to the deeper part of my true queer nature. * Framed upon purchase.

"I create colorful abstract paintings on feminism, gender, and queer sexuality. Bold reds, pinks, and purples surface in my color palette, exuding a potent bodily and visceral quality. Through abstraction I transform my pain into power, by reclaiming my core wounding through electrified color, fluid tubular shapes, and the queer body. I transcend my pain, by pouring light into my wounds, and transmuting it. By utilizing my intuition, I create paintings that evoke a mysterious and futuristic sensibility. As I envision the emergence of a mysterious, supernatural, and romantic queer future. By the imagining of a shared twin flame love, a mirror, glimmering with the light of ultraviolence, and luminescence of healing, and love. I manifest my own ethereal dream and vision of a queer utopia, eternal twin flame union." - Nicole Melnicky All images copyright © of Nicole Melnicky.
