Nicole Durham – The Caulk Artist

Greater Houston Area 

Nicole Durham, It Could All be so Simple, 40″X30

Artist Statement: An Experimental Journey of Obstinance: Creating textured artworks with caulk began as an experimental journey to explore my neglected cultural and domesticated identities. The nontraditional medium is an industrial, and far more obstinate, material than traditional artist products, reconnecting me with ambitious emotions of endurance and sacrifice. The porous material draws out the ambiguity of privileged creating, awarding the viewer with dramatic relief and multi-level textured experiences.

Description of artwork in three words: Formidable, Intimate, Vulnerable

What the artist wants you to know about them and their work: I like to emphasize that my core material of choice is caulk, which is not on your traditional artist supply list; more like your trip to the hardware store. Caulk. Not to be confused with chalk (which happens quite often) is the stuff that you use to line your bathtub and sinks, etc.
