In Nicole McCormick Santiago’s Paintings and Drawings, narrative is clearly the driving force behind the work. She strives to create visual narratives that seem to stretch out beyond the moment shown, creating a kind of “thick time.” Her work often portrays residues of the past, and suggestions of the future swirling around the present moment. Santiago also attempts to communicate insight into the social roles and relationships of her painted figures. To accomplish this, she uses the scattered signs of daily existence to communicate the accidental, yet honest, visual storylines that provide indirect insight into the cadence of a daily life.
