About the Work
My work exists in the edge between the physical study of organic form and psychological metaphor. Issues of the human psyche are seen in relationship to nature and as a fragment of nature. The mind and body are moving parts of the larger system of biological cycle and subconscious knowledge. My depiction of natural form is my mental projection and physical association with the non-human world. With humor and fascination I bring my obsessions, memories and identity to a place where the inner and outer world are melded together.

Elisabeth Nickles is a mixed media sculptor living in Philadelphia. She has produced bodies of work in bronze, glass and paper. She attended the Boston Museum School and The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and in 2007 received an MFA from Alfred University. Her work has recently been shown at the Philadelphia Airport, Schmidt Dean Gallery and Exit Art. She is currently a Muralab artist in Residence at NextFab through the Breadboard Science Center and Mural Arts where she is using new technologies to make small scale models that will be exhibited at the Esther Klein Science Center as possible projects for public spaces. During the past year, she completed a large scale commission for the SEPTA Arts in Transit program as well as a large wall sculpture for the offices of The Reinvestment Fund in Philadelphia.
