I am...
Nicola Tucker, Conflict & War Artist, is a graduate with honours in Art and Aesthetics and has taught English and Communication studies for 20 years
to post 16 students.The UK Outreach Representative for the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, L.A., Nicola is known for her mediation work and highly respected
within many communities, both locally and globally. Her expert knowledge has enabled her to act as an advisor, curator and participant of a number
of holocaust exhibitions in her home country of Wales, London, other parts of Europe, and America over the past five years.
Nicola’s extensive knowledge and interest in conflict, trauma and art, coupled with her wide-ranging research and charitable engagement in war zones,
has played a significant part in the development of her art work. Tucker’s solo(2000) exhibition ‘The Gift’ showed a collection of drawings and paintings
recounting her journey in Ethiopia during the war of 1992-93 and the people she met and travelled with. Another moving account created by the artist
consists of a photographic series of images taken from a child’s perspective of her journey from the family home in Krakow to the concentration camp
in Auschwitz.
Previously Nicola travelled with the Foreign Legion into remote areas throughout North Africa, including Eritrea and Somalia, locating and helping people
who had been shot or had become disfigured due to the conflict. She established, maintained and registered a clinic designed to aid people injured and
maimed by landmines. Her work with critically injured people in remote areas was recognized by the Foreign Legion and she was awarded their ‘Medal
for Bravery(1993) ’.Tucker’s current exhibition bears witness to a range of human traumas.

Artist in Residence and Artes Mundi Nominee 2010.

Nicola Tucker previously exhibited her work as an intrinsic part of the Vale’s inaugural commemorative Holocaust Exhibition in 2008/2009, held in conjunction with the National Holocaust Memorial Day and hosted at Art Central, the Vales prestigious gallery in Barry.

Nicola’s knowledge in this area and the development of her art work was invaluable for this unique exhibition.

“One of the common threads which will run through my work is ‘place’. This hand made study entitled Shtetls (Wooden community home) considers the disappearance of the vast majority, through forced ghettoiszation, destruction, terrorisation and extermination.

This exhibition is dedicated to the memory of
‘Professor Alfred Moritz’
Artists I like
Giotto, Bosch, Kathe Kollowitz, Anselm Kiefer, Maciej Hoffman and many many others...

i found your work very moving and powerful. i visited the Holocaust Museum in NYC and have an interest in WWll as well. Please have a look at my work, which is predominantly about submissive/subjugated women and the Patriarcal/Dominant male power that controls them as i can see links between our work that is not immediately obvious.

Ti ringrazio per l'apprezzamento dei mei lavori, ti rispondo in italiano perchè il mio inglese è pessimo. Vendo presso il mio studio e non sono con nessuna galleria, non ho molti disegni, perchè disegno direttamente sulla tela prima di dipingere.
