Artist Statement

Nicole Little is a Portland artist whose works are all about breaking apart our perceived realities and putting them back together again. Once the image of our universe has been taken apart completely we can put it back together and break it again. Repeating this process every day helps us understand that we will never understand completely. We are left on the border between the known and the unknown, which is the most beautiful place to be. Here mystery is obscured by splendor and our connection to the infinite can be felt.

Nicole uses lucid dreaming and a deep love of astronomy, geology, and science fiction as inspiration for her work. Watercolor, acrylic, and pen and ink are the main mediums used to express the excitement the beauty of existence brings her.

FAQs for Artists

What is your gallery traffic like?

Being as the gallery is located in our float center, we get a lot of crossover foot traffic.  Aside from the gallery, we run 1200 floats a month, and are located in the heart of the SE on Hawthorne Blvd. The shop has large windows facing the street, so the art is visible 24/7 from the sidewalk.

What mediums do you accept in the gallery?

Anything that can be hung vertically by our wire/hook track system. Please do not include any fresh/wet oil pieces.

What is your commission rate?

We only charge a 5% commission!! This basically just covers credit processing charges.

What about the original piece?

Along with the process of being a gallery exhibitor, you will be given 4 float sessions in exchange for one original float inspired piece after completing your float sessions.  It will also be hung in the gallery for the duration of the month. After your month is over the original, float inspired piece will belong to Float On to be appreciated for ages to come.

What is your transport policy?

The gallery artist is completely responsible for all transport of gallery pieces.

Do I have to sign a contract?

Yes, there is a basic contract involved, but it is painless.
