Painter Nicole Gordon’s work is obviously influenced by Northern Renaissance painters like Bruegel and Hieronymus Bosch. Her paintings utilize surrealist environments to communicate the concept of sin. The mashup combination of old world inspiration with modern day subject matter manifests a particular tension in her work.

Her artist statement claims that her apocolyptic visions reflect hope and a possibility for change in an era where the destruction of the environment is par for the course in a post industrialized world that puts economy before ecosystem.
