Nicole Okumu has taken her fascination with printed matter-both images and written language and re-assemebled and deconstructed it to produce a series of provocative collages that aim to make lifes invisible, visible. with an eye for bold color and shapes, she combines images with captions to address elements of live that can be difficult to navigate into meaning: parenthood, politics, erotica, feminism and the absurdities of the mundane. Her quirky humor elevates her themes, adding a sense of warmth and accessibility. these hybrids of words and images gracefully intersect between serious issues and playfulness making them compelling as a series or as stand alone pieces.
