NICOLETTE BÉNARD

A visual artist and jewellery designer, Nicolette Bénard's work embodies the art of transformation, with the intersection of perfection and imperfection a primary theme. Born in the Netherlands, Nicolette graduated from Schoonhoven's Dutch Technical Professional School of Silver, Goldsmiths and Design before going on to exhibit her work in solo and group exhibitions across the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, Taiwan and Europe.

In her series of framed wall objects, she investigates a doll's position as an icon of perfection and beauty while transforming her dolls into unique and iconic pieces of art. With a healthy dose of humour, Nicolette's work begs a key question: Is this the ideal of beauty or false idealism?
