Nancy Milner (Abbey Scholar in Painting 2014-15)

I make paintings that use colour and form to investigate light and space in painting. My thinking centres on the relationship between painting and architectural space. I am interested in the ways that our day-to-day lives are ordered and the influence this has on the painting process. In the process of painting a dialogue between myself and the painting opens up a space where decisions are challenged and pushed. The finished paintings are an accumulation of the time taken to make them, a manifestation of thinking, memory and experience in the space of painting.

Produco dipinti che sfruttano colore e forma per investigare concetti pittorici di luce e spazio. La mia ricerca si incentra sul rapporto tra la pittura e lo spazio architettonico. Sono interessata ai modi in cui la nostra vita quotidiana si organizza e a l’influenza questo ha sul processo pittorico. Nel processo pittorico, un dialogo si forma tra me e il dipinto, che da luogo a decisioni contestate e azzardate. I dipinti, una volta ultimati, sono il risultato di un’accumulazione del tempo trascorso per realizzarli, e la manifestazione di pensieri, ricordi, ed esperienze nello spazio pittorico.
