Artist: Nicole de Mestre
   
Title: Oyster Bed
   
Price: POA
   
Statement: "The Walrus and the Carpenter
Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
Conveniently low:
And all the little Oysters stood
And waited in a row."
Biography: Nicole can be found either in her overcrowded shed or out on Central Coast streets rifling through kerbside pick-up piles searching for inspiration. Her art reflects a curious attachment to discarded materials, an increasing frustration with the prolific waste of modern society and a healthy obsession with rusty metal and old rope. She creates an eclectic range of artistic works, inspired by environmental concerns and linked through the use of locally-sourced recycled materials and found objects.
