Nika Fontaine’s work deals boldly with the viewer’s visual perceptions as well as their cultural ones, enacting an exploration of spirituality that elevates the use of glitter to a metaphysical level. Combining a direct embrace of camp tropes and would-be kitsch materials with an intense regard on the sublime and the beautiful, she makes art that eliminates the distinction between the authentic and the artificial, in order to both celebrate and interrogate our multifaceted lives as embodied and psychological beings.
