Nicola Moss exhibition at Salt Contemporary Art


Nicola Moss has a new solo exhibition - Diamonds in my eyes - opening on 16 April at Salt Contemporary Art Gallery (33-35 Hesse Street, Queenscliff, Victoria. Ph:03 5258 3988) and continuing to 6 May. Through her paintings, Moss examines the importance of the natural environment and notions about what we value. With diamonds and trees both essentially being carbon, she questions, could stately trees become the bling of the future?
