DRAWING 2018

Nicola Grellier is consolidating her practice using the making process and supposedly low value materials to describe serially chaotic ideas and thoughts. Finding meaning in mundane objects such as chairs, clothing and packaging - describers of human space and activity, she considers the equation of an artistic gesture, in activities like cutting, sticking, stitching, drawing and collecting, and a possibly successful outcome: momentary clarity, lengthy activity and final meaning or meanings produce an awkward sense of value or relevance. Grellier works on pieces and projects that take some time to make, providing opportunities to consider the sudden impetus to make them.
