Life is an interplay of art and science, exploring the inner wisdom of sacred geometry - inviting us on a transformational journey.”
NICCI OLIVIER (1960 -)
The land and sea, stories, texture, movement and her travels are themes that constantly emerge in the work of the multi-disciplinary South African artist, Nicci Olivier. In the telling of visual stories, Nicci, explores ancient symbols and traditions, contrasting them with modern day symbols and trends.
