Artist Biography

Nicole-3French born, NH (Nicole Pon Horvath) has been taught by Japanese Masters. She has studied the traditional disciplines of ‘Sumie’ (ink painting), ‘Nihonga’ (painting with pigments) and ‘Ikebana’ (Sogetsu Master). In addition, NH is a creative art framer, and fashion designer (Doreme).

NH’s work expresses the sensitive transformation of emotions which occur during meditative awareness. In this stillness, the search is for peaceful contemplation to open hearts and minds, creating moments of happiness and profound connection to the natural elements.

NH’s current inspiration stems from nature, particularly exploring the moon, bamboo and trees – painting on canvas with acrylics. She is fascinated with rebirth after trauma, and the inspiration which ignites at times of new beginnings.

Having exhibited in Tokyo and Provence, NH is currently based in Singapore.

“I feel it is time now to focus on the beauty we have around us. Love them. Respect them. Protect them. By 'them' I mean: trees, people, full moons in nature, air, water and skies.” - NH

Artist Statement

My life would not be complete without painting.  It is the purpose of my life.  I paint to go deeper into my feelings.  I paint to satisfy an urge to express and share them.  I listen to it.  I feel it.  I breathe it.  I contemplate with my senses.  I focus on one movement, one moment, one sensation, one feeling.  Like the zoom and click of a camera in the hands of a photographer.

I get my inspiration from the colours in the skies I have found in Japan, Nice and Amsterdam.  They are a gentle reminder of my youth in Algeria.

I paint skies.  I paint nature, with a focus on trees – bamboo, plum trees, sakura, pine trees, maples… I paint full moons.  I paint water in movement.  I paint portraits of imaginary people.  I am captivated by moments in time.

In order to create, I need calm, with my studio in order and pristine.  I am surrounded by Japanese and Chinese cabinets and my canvas.  I have signs to remind me of Japan.  I have my magic table, designed by me and created by my favorite antique dealer in Tokyo.  I have my magic Japanese brushes.  Music in the background.  Tango (Machiko Ozawa), Japanese, Chinese, Ella, Louis, Stacy Kent, and lately spiritual music.  I am ready.

After preparing the canvas, I abandon myself to unleash creativity.  I work on multiple canvases at a time.  Different stages of evolution of painting offer access to different levels of pleasure in creativity.  The start.  The realization.  The perfected work.

I feel it is time now to focus on the beauty we have around us.  Love them.  Respect them.  Protect them.  By ‘them’ I mean: trees, people, full moons in nature, air, water and skies.
