Fractura [Surreal Times] is a project that started during the pandemic lockdowns in 2020. Being housebound, I took to revisiting earlier shots. Existing photos were deconstructed and new images were created. Each image is based on an element of surreality that correlates emotionally with the implications of lockdown - and at first glance things may seem normal, but a closer look reveals that all is not as it should be.

Nicole Gadiel is a visual artist working within the fields of photography and painting; creating fine art and designing interior decor artwork for private and commercial clients around the globe. Born and raised in Canada, Nicole moved to Denmark as a teenager. This inspired her to view the world from new perspectives and different angles; an ability she successfully implemented throughout her career in strategic communications and now applies to the creation of artwork as she visually translates the obvious to the emotive.
