GEMMA NELSON (b.1984)
Highly obsessive and organic in construction, Gemma Nelson’s paintings weave like cells, creating delicate chaotic tapestries in response to various themes such as female sexuality and fairy tales. Using Indian inks and mixed media on canvas, her paintings are high pitched in colour, creating illusionary worlds that are both resonant and abstract.
In 2007, Nelson’s paintings were selected in the Nationwide Mercury Art Prize. The following year Nelson was selected for Charles Saatchi and Channel 4′s 4 New Sensations.
The artist has exhibited both nationally and internationally. In 2009 she provided the front cover artwork for A-N Magazine, prompting high profile shows in London. Following this she then exhibited at the Dulwich Picture Gallery Bicentenary Exhibition.
