BiographyNina Archer Graduated with a BA(Hons) in graphic design. She has a broad association with landscape and is resonant with marks made by cultivation, ancient and modern. Nina works by building up multiple layers with a palette knife and then sanding, scoring and erasing – constantly adding and subtracting to reveal or obscure memory of something previous. She uses elements of what she sees, predominantly from the landscape, paring down to simple abstraction.
Contrast and balance are an important part of her work – the juxtaposition of negative space with complex surfaces of textural layering. The ongoing conflict between order and chaos.
