“Switching places”
“Jovial heart”

Nightlight
Autumn Nicole

As I found myself bustling home from the train station late into the night alone in France, I noticed this man, every presently watching me in the final moments before reaching my door. Through the quietness, the darkness, and the stillness. I found myself beginning to hold his stare in return, and maybe even retaliation for how long I felt his heavy eyes. This game continued for months, yet stranger still, I realized it brought me a sense of comfort at some point. Why?

Autumn Nicole
Visual Artist, USA

Autumn Nicole is an emerging artist based out of Southern California and received her BFA from California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo in 2020. Nicole’s works aim to help others engage audiences in vulnerable conversations. She uses her work as a way to bridge intimacy gaps and foster thoughtful conversation. Her portrayals include visual puzzles that encourage an audience to solve and unravel hidden narratives. The ideas portrayed expand on intimacy and relationships. These themes often convey abstracted or distorted versions of memories. Her paintings are primarily composed of dark cool colors, and highly contrasted scenes. These depictions create a sense of alienation and rigid withholding of the subjects that they depict. Using paintings and works in felt, Nicole calls attention to areas of society that are glossed over. These glimpses often feature experiences of adversity or encounters with the subjects she depicts. Leaning into memory as an idea itself, the way it constantly shifts and moves like sand through the fingertips, becoming a continuous and intangible enigma.

Lydia Tyburski
Visual Artist, USA

”I am a visual and digital artist primarily working with narrative psychological themes. I enjoy working with a variety of mediums and hope to explore more depth of topics during the residency. I graduated from school with a degree in painting in 2010. Since then I have focused on developing a variety of skills in the professional world which I hope to incorporate into my work as I dive back into working with my favorite mediums. I also enjoy the humorous side of life and hope to make more work that speaks to our inner divine fool.”

Balance
Niamh-Erin Cusack

When I began thinking critically and conceptually about how I was going to portray the research and experimentation of my art practice, I came to the conclusion that spontaneity and development were the main reasons for my outcomes. Mark making through exploration of our senses lead me to a place of vibrancy and continuous discovery. The content of my work is based on space weather and the space around us and what I hear and how it makes me feel.

In relation to my creative process, it is the empty space that represents my lack of knowledge of the greater aspects of our Solar System. The use of light vibrant colors illustrates my curiosity for space and paint as a medium and interprets my concepts through playful design and composition. This process has flourished my artistic practice through a natural flow and I believe it has brought me to a place of continuous development.

There is something about the consistency of paint and how it transfers onto materials that fascinates me so much. The act of letting go and not focusing on the outcome of an art piece has played a large role in my process throughout my time with World of Co and I believe it creates a playful and therapeutic art practice for me. The name Balance comes from the aligning working progress that has conscious decision making and spontaneity when researching and mark-making.
