Nicole Fraser

NICOLE CLARE FRASER studied at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, the University of Cape Town. She graduated in 2012 with a BA in Fine Art. Nicole’s first introduction to the darkroom was during her 11th year at high school. It was here that her intrigue and sensitivity toward the medium developed. Since school she continued with darkroom work at University and thereafter has completed Darkroom Photography and Hand Printing Workshops with the highly regarded and Master Black and White printer, Dennis Da Silva. In 2018 Nicole had her first solo exhibition, a quiet place, at the ORMS Cape Town School of Photography where she lecturers in Darkroom and Analogue Photography. Currently, Nicole works as an educator in wet darkroom techniques and printing at FET and tertiary institutions in Cape Town. Her personal practice explores capturing spaces and places absent of people but clearly suggestive of the human presence.

FOLKLORE

01.12.18 – 16.01.2019

SALON NINETY ONE End-of-year salon-style group show in aid of True North

Accessible, affordable artwork across a broad range of mediums by some of Salon Ninety One’s favourite emerging and established creatives. This year our Gallery and Exhibiting Artists will be donating ten percent of all artwork sales to the True North Organisation. Spoil yourself or a loved one with that special one-of-a-kind artwork and make a difference to the life of someone much younger and less fortunate. True North is a non-profit organisation that is pioneering Early Childhood Development (ECD) initiatives within marginalised communities.The historical lack of adequate provisioning of basic services to poor communities manifests itself within all spheres of society, ultimately resulting in a vast loss of human potential. The long-term ripple effects of inequality includes increased rates of unemployment, disease, substance abuse and the fragmentation of family units, and unfortunately young children are the most at risk. An incredible developmental window of opportunity exists within these early years, and it rapidly diminishes with age. This potential for growth into a “whole” person is not limited to academic development, but encompasses every part of the child’s world. As we celebrate ten wonderful years of Salon Ninety One, we recognise the light, love and hard work that has gone into building the True North organisation since 2007. Join Salon91 and our generous young artists this festive season in our quest to give the Vrygrond community and the youth of our country a brighter future.

For more information about the True North Organisation, please visit their website.
For any enquiries pertaining to the exhibition, please contact the gallery on 021-424-6930 or email enquiries@salon91.co.za
