Crow, 2018, Indian ink and Collage
Scrunched Up Ball Of Paper, 2018, collage
Starling V, 2018, Indian ink and collage
In an attempt to understand the contradictions between our interior and exterior world, Nina Fraser’s work explores the human relationship with our changing landscape. She uses found materials and an analogue approach – collage, cutting and tearing materials – to create the final artistic outcome.
In Crow and Starling V, the artist evokes the relationship between society and animals – using images of clothing as a symbolic material to cover the head and body of the bird. Scrunched-up Paper is inspired by Cubist artworks and explores three dimensionalities within the two-dimensional plane.
Nina Fraser (St. Albans, UK) completed her BA in Textile Art with distinction at Winchester College of Art, UK. From 2015-17 she attended the artist residency program at MArt, in Lisbon. She has been exhibiting her work since 2014.
Her work is represented in institutional and private collections in Portugal, USA, Germany, Australia, Poland and UK. Her collages have been published in magazines and books, including, most recently; "Collage by Women, 50 Essential Contemporary Artists" edited by Promopress, in 2019.
