Art Edit presents a curated selection of artists whose work is inspired by nature.
The unwavering glance of a bird isn’t always cause for calm, but in the painted resemblances of New South Wales artist Nicole Grimm-Hewitt, it becomes the subject of quiet contemplation. Particularly enthralled by their stare, Nicole will start by painting the eyes, usually against a plain background designed to draw attention to her intended focal point.
The artist will then go about the time-consuming task of painting each feather in single strokes using a fine brush, until each of her subjects – whether a magpie, a sea eagle or a cockatoo – emerges as a detailed and engaging doppelgänger of its original.
