Barbara Nicholls ‘Sedimentary Flow’ exhibition

11 August – 19 November 2017

 

Barbara Nicholls’ monumental watercolour works emerge by manipulating the behaviour of pigment in ever-increasing quantities of water. They have associations with geological forms touching on collective memories of the experience of natural spaces, of the landscape and of the body.

 

“Nicholls has followed the idiosyncrasies in the behaviour of her materials and has orchestrated them into resonant shapes that, while never declaring themselves in any specific identity, nonetheless touch collective memories of the experience of natural spaces, of the landscape. In that way, she formulates a new reality”.
