Scottsdale contemporary artist Niki Woehler, specializes in both organic, textural canvas works, as well as abstract high gloss resin art panels and customized waterproof art installations emphasizing rich color that often resemble stone scattered with minerals. Her large scale art pieces have caught eyes world wide and is currently represented by Forré & Co Fine Art Galleries in both Aspen and Vail, Colorado, Slate Gray Gallery in Telluride Colorado and Kerrville TX, The Broadmoor Galleries at the iconic Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, House of Anderson in Scottsdale Arizona. Niki is one of a select few artists invited to show at the Found:Re Hotel, an upscale boutique hotel dedicated to the visual arts downtown Phoenix, opening fall 2016. One of Niki’s works, Silent Partners was handpicked from more than 1100 submissions to be part of a group show titled “Face Off” at the Herberger Theater Gallery, to run October 2016 through January 2017, and just took first place at the Arizona State Fair Fine Art competition.
Woehler’s paintings have been featured exhibitions in galleries and showrooms in Arizona, including New City Studio, PavoReal Interiors, Roche Bobois, Modern Group Scottsdale, as well as a guest of the Waldorf Astoria Arizona Biltmore Resort during the Arizona Concours D'elegance.
Her art can be found in both private and corporate collections all over the USA and Canada. Top-tier interior designers integrate her work into their contemporary designs. Woehler is also contracted with several top art consultants throughout the United States. In 2017 CBRE commissioned a 54ftx6ft installation for their new offices in the Esplanade, in Phoenix Arizona. In 2018 Indeed commissioned a custom logo art wall or their new Scottsdale head offices.
Woehler grew up in Toronto, Canada and has lived in Phoenix since 1994. She studied broadcasting and marketing at Sheridan College, and spent almost 25 years in the industry, including founding and running a boutique ad agency for more than a decade. In 2012, Niki made the decision to follow her passion and devote herself to painting full time. She hasn’t looked back since.
Lines, layers and textures invade smooth facades, exchanging surface beauty for depth, character, strength and wisdom. My paintings are inspired by objects ravaged by nature and the participating elements, including; water, wind, earth or fire. To me, the longer something stands the tests of time, the more interesting it becomes. I am drawn to the details of the imperfect, needing to tell its story: A tree on fire – literally or figuratively; a perspective magnified or obscured by rain; a piece of wood that’s been weathered; eroded rocks, and metal rusted and etched.
