The water series was initially produced when she began to experiment with artistic resins. This new medium allowed her to “drown” her drawings, creating a thick wet looking layer on the board. This allowed the portrayal of water scenes in a new light. She began to paint a number of swimmers and then fish and jellyfish that all seem to reflect actual moments of underwater life. Jellyfish have fast become a new artistic trend. These simple creatures draw a fine line between the beauty and perils of the sea. Sinking between schools of fish moving in unison, captured by brush and spatula during their silent passage; the jellyfish float on the boards with their beautifully threatening tentacles both frightening and fascinating. Nicoletta easily captures the movements, colors, and life of these mysterious underwater animals. Her works are an underwater porthole to spy on the movements and colors of the sea.
