When the last of us falls,

why you didn’t do more
Nicole Watt aka Mahlimae (Australia) is an internationally known self-taught mixed media sculpture artist living and creating in the wilderness of Southern Tasmania, Australia. Her exquisitely simplistic and emotionally driven characters evolve from a world long forgotten; a world hidden in the shadows of imagination. Finding inspiration in ancient ritual and folklore, Nicole’s melancholic works take you on a compelling journey into the darkness and light of human nature, drawing you in closer to explore the stories hidden within their subtle and fragile expressions. Each piece is carefully hand sculpted using stone clay, gathered natural materials and tattered hand-dyed textiles. The final works are pulled together by a common theme of possibility, a longing for connection, and an aim to intrigue.
