Nell

By Natalie King

$30.00

A new series of monographs on Australian female artists, selected with series editor Natalie King, curator and Enterprise Professor at the Victorian College of the Arts. These books are compact yet perfectly formed. They comprise 96 pages of the artist’s favourite works – designed for optimum visual impact and to reach anyone who is inspired by art and beauty.

The extra frisson for these titles comes in the introduction. For each monograph, one luminary from another field will write a personal, powerful essay of 1200 words. It could be an ode to one particular painting; it could be a parallel narrative inspired by themes in the artist’s work.

Nell is a Sydney-based artist with a practice that spans performance, installation, video, painting and sculpture. Born in Maitland, NSW, Nell studied under Lindy Lee at Sydney College of the Arts, the University of Sydney (1995); with Joan Jonas and John Baldessari at the University of California, Los Angeles (1996); and with Annette Messager at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris (2006). She has undertaken residencies at the British School at Rome; with Red Gate Gallery, Beijing; at the Australian National University, Canberra; and at Artspace, Sydney.
