Nicky Neate is a process based artist who explores the passage of time through the medium of printmaking. Nick comments," Everything that has a physical presence, animate or otherwise, leaves trace evidence of its existence." She adds, "My work describes the ephemeral existence of objects and physical life, of how desires and pleasures are fleeting. How all life is fragile, constantly changing and eternal". Utilizing the process based practice of printmaking to emphasize the notion; Nicky's art reflects and becomes part of a fleeting moment, leaving an exploratory trail of evidence behind her.
