About the Artist
A native of Atlanta, Nichole Spates lived in New York City for seventeen years before moving to Orlando in 2019. She enjoys exploring her new home, a mix of urban and natural environments and sites interesting and mundane. Nichole’s photographic style is expressed through the lens of her personal interests which, beyond photography, include urban landscapes and parks, dance, nature, modern art and public art. Of particular interest is the overlaying of disparate images through digital double or multiple exposure and doubling or splicing of images, as seen in her Orlando Mirages, A Confusing Path and Urban Abstraction photo series. Her work has been shown in group exhibitions in New York City and Central Florida, in online exhibitions and printed in literary journals. An adaptation of the images from her In My House mini photo series can been seen as a 4’ x 10’ hand-painted art panel entitled Frond Memories (2021) in neighborhood of Ivanhoe Village in Orlando.
