As is the case with Wassall’s work, things are never quite as they first appear. Process, theory, and authenticity are the cornerstones of her practice, with a pinch of magic added for good measure.

New London contemporary art exhibition by Fiumano Clase in Pall Mall. Visit our gallery to view “Unicorns Are Real” by Nicole Wassall until 20th October 2023.

‘Ghost of a Unicorn’ is a delicate and haunting etching: it is Wassall’s interpretation of an Elasmotherium Sibiricum, also known as the Siberian Unicorn.

A 2018 study using cutting-edge radiocarbon dating, led by Professor Adrian Lister, Merit Researcher at the Natural History Museum, London, confirmed that unicorns lived as recently as 35,000 years ago, a far cry from the 100 - 200,000 years previously believed. This means unicorns were roaming the Eurasian grasslands alongside modern humans, proving the point, ‘Unicorns are Real’.

Our current vision of unicorns is informed by classical antiquity; an elegant beast with a single pointed horn. However, Wassall reimagined this real and mythical creature as a glowing ghost of its former self. Keeping the essence of the unicorn’s magic and mystery she researched skeletal structures of Siberian Unicorns, resulting in a beast that is almost unrecognisable.

Wassall’s practice is steeped in research and discovery, leading her to create works that are both surprising and somehow familiar. She often explores feminist ideas alongside broader issues of inequality, race, class, and religion. She describes the exquisite jewel-like piece ‘Pope Joan, Patron Saint of Feminists’ as a contemporary take on icon painting. Pope Joan, the legendary female pontiff, supposedly reigned under the title of John VIII for just over 25 months, from 855 to 858.

It is said she gave birth during a religious procession and was subsequently stoned to death. Wassall depicts her patron saint of feminists floating above a golden road, with a symbolic hole in her stomach.

Wassall’s ‘Pope Joan, Patron Saint of Feminists’ applies the conventions of religious icon painting. However, the sky is left as bare gesso, atypical for an icon. Her reasoning is that this is not a ‘blue sky’ picture, and the story remains unresolved. The bare gesso also provides a contemporary take on a tradition of icon painting; it should symbolise a story rather than tell it.

The phrase ‘the medium is the message’, coined in 1967 by Canadian communication theorist Marshall McLuhan, is certainly true of Wassall’s art. The significance of each work is uniquely tied to the materials used. As she masters techniques new to her, she embraces and celebrates the interesting, and at times curious, outcomes.
