Londoner Nicky Jameson was homesick. A Toronto-based fine art photographer, the London native missed the beautiful imperfections and alluring grit of her hometown, feeling a surge of sentimentality best expressed in artistic form. Combining her fine art photography skills and creative background, Nicky’s artistic grunge approach allows her to portray a city’s emotion and nostalgia through a photograph, while layering on textures, colors, stains, fabrics, and other mixed media to create an intriguing piece that evokes fondness and reminiscence of a landmark, street, or neighborhood. Through these unique and subtle additions, Nicky’s work becomes a lot like memories themselves—layered reflection that’s steeped in a moment’s emotion, connection, and time. From famous landmarks to the anonymous detritus of a city, Nicky’s cityscapes portray the overlapping complexity of urban life. In addition to London, her one-of-a-kind pieces include Toronto scenes, inviting locals and expats to instantly reconnect with the city’s familiar feel. Art should be more than a conversation starter; it should evoke a sense of connection, inspiration, and belonging. By capturing the essence of a city’s dynamic energy, Nicky’s artwork allows a familiar story to unfold, each and every time.
