  Nicola Moss major commission 

The opening of the new Gold Coast University Hospital is drawing near, it's where you can see 'Coast Life' by Nicola Moss – a major three dimensional sculptural public artwork commissioned for the site. The completed glass application artwork spans six levels in the main entrance and atrium. Referencing ecology and habitats from coast to hinterland, ‘Coast Life’ draws on silhouettes and interactions between species to create a distinct sense of place. This project was produced in conjunction with UAP, Brisbane.

Grass becomes a barometer for seasonal change, such as the aftermath of flood and other weather events. The Following the Big Wet series of paintings speak of such haunting images that nature sometimes provides us. More than simply a representation of grass, these paintings evoke deeper stories and memories - a continuation of an artistic theme and a subject matter which has dominated the artist's paintings for the past 12 years.
