Local Artist Tastes Success At Rollits Exhibition Launch

Nichole Dean

Local artist, Nichole Dean launched her debut exhibition at our York office at Rowntree Wharf last night (November 28th) and enjoyed immediate success - with virtually a fifth of her paintings selling on the night.

Nichole, 23, was educated at the York's St Peter's School and says her influences are rooted in experience - ranging from childhood trips to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to a year spent studying in Rome - and that she has been inspired by the abstract expressionists, Robert Motherwell and Franz Kline.

The works on display at the Rollits' exhibition, which are realised in charcoal and oil,  explore the themes of organic and industrial, with some inspired by Yorkshire industrial scenes such as the Ferrybridge power station. 

Commenting on the success of the launch, she said: "To have secured my debut exhibition so early in my career was huge, but to sell six of the 32 works on display on the launch night is beyond my wildest dreams."

The exhibition of Nichole Dean's work will be on display at Rollits for three months and the firm have organised for open days Friday, 20 December 2013 and Friday, 24 January 2014 so that the general public are able to enjoy it.

Pat Coyle, director of client relations at Rollits, said: "We actively seek to support local art and culture and Nichole's links to York meant she was the ideal subject of our first exhibition."

"Everyone was delighted with the success of the night and I hope as many people as possible are able to come and see for themselves what an exciting prospect she is during our open days."

During the last night's exhibition launched, Nichole Dean's "Repetition 6"  was raffled for Macmillan Cancer Support and raised £220.
