Nina Baxter – Art News

26th May 2017 Open Studios

If you were at the Festival last year then you will surely remember the exquisite work of artist Nina Baxter. Nina’s work explores themes of escapism, the beauty of nature, and communication in our modern lifestyles. Her paintings evolve from landscape to abstraction with the focus on the interaction of colour. Baxter also produces surreal tongue-in-cheek collages, often working with musicians, including artwork for the band Flyte.
Since last years festival Nina has been extremely busy with her art and has shared with us some of her most recent updates!

The Wall, by Nina Baxter. Acrylic on canvas. Based on La Muralla Roja by Ricardo Bofill.

In a recent interview with The Artistic Odyssey Nina has been discussing her influences and practice, as well as whats to come.

She has four paintings shortlisted for the 4th edition of The Royal Arts Prize! Twenty-five artists have been selected to exhibit at La Galleria Pall Mall for the RAP from 30th May to 10th June. The private view for the exhibition is on Wednesday 31st May 6-8.30 pm.

There will also be a feature of her latest painting “The Wall” in the well renowned Aesthetica Magazine in the June/July issue. “The Wall” began as a paper collage and was based on Ricardo Bofill’s La Muralla Roja in Calpe.

In this piece I wanted to explore the possibility of translating an architectural structure into an abstract painting.
