Nina Garstang is an artist whose work explores the creative potential of the abstract. She has a Master of Arts from the Royal College of Art, where she focused on abstract painting, working with light in film and installations. Her artwork has been exhibited by galleries around the world and her paintings and prints are now available for purchase. Using a variety of media and techniques, Nina’s work is a unique expression of abstract art that captures the beauty and emotion of the moment, that takes the viewer out to the universe and into the molecular.
“The colours hit me up with their intensity, like chemicals chasing through my blood. It’s a visceral thing at first and then meaning emerges: I get rivers, seas and mountains, then into cells under microscopes, maps of the earth from space bleeding into brains and embryos, soft tissues and weather systems all on a single sheet of glass, yet it is still. I’m getting flashes of old masters too, like faces and scenes from other things I’ve seen dissolving away from me.” Author & Poet Richard Lewis’s description of my work.
