Nicole Coson (b. 1992) is an artist raised in Manila and currently based in London. Coson works on a variety of media with a focus on analogue printmaking methods and techniques. She completed her studies in Fine Art with first class honours in Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in 2014, that same year she was also nominated for the prestigious New Sensations award by Saatchi Gallery. Her first solo show in Manila titled “Spirit Captures” took place in West Gallery in 2013. She then went on to do her first solo and second show in London one year after completing her studies.

Coson’s work revolves around the analogy of the ghost: a loose and phantom form that, though beyond our grasp, invades our tactile and physical world. The suggestion of movement—or rather, of momentum— is integral to her work; the singular impression of the monotype printmaking process captures the blur of fleeting signals in stasis, leaving behind a flurry of figures that appear almost recognisably and residually organic. In her work, she seeks the contemplation of something caught mid-flight, captured for a brief moment in time when these forms become strangely perceptible but whose physical make-up and origin are impenetrable.
