About the Work“Swamp Queen’” is surrealism envisioned in a swamp setting where the alligator is ultimately in its own element. We see the feet of what appears to be a woman out of the alligator's mouth as if to suggest that everyone dominates in their own environment. The waves seen in the artwork are something that we see time and again in Nicholl’s work. The crown on the alligator is a strong indicative status symbol within this surrealistic artwork. Either the crown had belonged to the alligator before the intrusion of the female form, or the alligator took it from the woman she is now chewing upon. This artwork seems to suggest that we are masters of our own environment, and we all master a specific path in life. “Queen” is written across the artwork in the big blue letters, to solidify the status of the alligator in the artwork. “Swam Queen” is a 30 x 23 – inch acrylic, pencil, and enamel on arches archival heavyweight paper.
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.
