About the WorkFemale symbolism is strong in Anne Faith Nicholls’ artwork, and the analogy on the “Girl with Octopus on Rocks” is female oriented as well. This is a painting for the “every girl” swimming through life, avoiding “suckers” she encounters along her way. Craggy rocks offer a safe refuge from rough seas and creepy creatures. Ominous tentacles reaching for the girl represent suckers of all sorts, including, but not limited to ‘time suckers’, ‘energy suckers’, and ‘soul suckers’. Wearing an octopus “crown” we see our swimmer, perhaps victorious, or at least harmonious at last, with said suckers that surround her. “Girl with Octopus on Rocks” is a 36 x 24 – inch acrylic and charcoal on canvas.
About the Artist
Anne Faith Nicholls is a truly unique addition to the contemporary art scene—she provides a refreshing look at the soul of the modern woman and artist. Born with a backwards heart, Nicholls has an inner strength that is inspirational and captivating. Her sense of adventure and exploration began in Victoria, British Columbia. Restless to travel to new places, she made her journey south to San Francisco, graduating from the Academy of Art University, and then on to Los Angeles where she resides today. She has traveled the world with a focus on studying the masters. This commitment to traditional painting has contributed to the development of her own unique style of utilizing both oil and acrylic to achieve a signature layered look and a saturated, antiqued, color palette.
