Nicoz Balboa
Nicoz has always been intrigued by erotic art. At 18 her idea of beauty and sexuality was informed by the discovery of Richard Kern’s “New York Girls”. In her past artwork Nicoz has been quite shy about incorporating this sexuality and her characters have often been portrayed as child-like and naïve. In this new series Nicoz pushes her own boundaries and confronts the awkward place of nakedness. The resulting paintings and drawings are simultaneously vulnerable and powerful, leaving the viewer with a sense of being both voyeur and participant.
