Mallory Nuckols, Figure Painter
Mallory Nuckols is an oil painter living in Weaverville, NC focusing on the exploration of female body image in a society that continues to encourage unrealistic beauty standards and expectations. Mallory’s influences are every-day women that all have their own extraordinary story to tell.
Her work challenges her audience to view the female form under a different lens. Whether she is experimenting with high-contrast linear projections that blanket the form, or abstracting the figure with bold colors against botanical backgrounds- each piece is derived with the intention of providing an empowering experience for the subject and viewer.
