Nicky Hirst’s art is perhaps best described as an exploration of serendipity that can occur in unintended and unexpected places. Her sources may be particular objects or certain words whose meaning she may subtly shift by manipulation or juxtaposition. Hirst’s output includes drawing, sculpture, etched glass, collage, printed text, photography and public art commissions. While avoiding simple categorisation, Hirst’s art is always characterised by a measured stance and sensitivity towards materials.

Nicky Hirst’s sculptures and installations quietly and skillfully explore the consonances and dissonances between object, context and materials.
