Nina’s work is richly layered, combining dreamlike imagery with a sensuous thingness, an assertive presence in the world. She brings together the real and imagined to approach something intuited about the way we experience life. Every work has the sense of a fleeting point of still clarity in the tidal rush of the everyday: a feeling as nebulous and vivid as that conjured by the image of a shawl hanging (caught?) on a nail in Virginia Woolf’s To The Lighthouse. Impressions as ineffable as this are necessarily approached by circuitous routes, often returning to/reworking the same motif or way of painting over and over; building what the artist calls a kind of muscle memory.
