Nicola Grellier uses materials and methods which may be considered uncontemporary and of low value. Her practice often involves lengthy investments of making-time, connecting with a lifelong interest in and practice of what’s traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’. She aims to provoke an awkward sense of relevance and attempts to make concrete the extraordinary brevity of moments of clarity (happiness) with these foolhardy activities which vacillate between confusion and control.
Employing mundane objects and materials such as clothing, chairs, room screens, brown paper, wool, pill packets and pencil Grellier examines emotional states of vulnerability and confidence and the junction between body and consciousness.
Nicola Grellier is studying MA Fine Art at UWE Bristol 2017-2020.
