Paint, Collage and Sculpture
Nina Fraser (St. Albans, Hertfordshire, UK, 1984) gained a first class degree hons BA Textile Art at Winchester College of Art, Hampshire, UK in 2006. It was from this material investigation that she eventually found herself working directly with paper. Multidisciplinary, Nina's work draws influence from drawing, painting, collage and sculpture, often combining several processes in one work, connecting fragments to generate new ideas. Her work is polarized by that of self-reflection and exterior exploration, exploring the notions of appropriation, desire and attachment. In 2008 she co-founded The Art House Southampton, a not-for-profit community arts cafe, where she was co- director for seven years. She emigrated to Portugal in 2014, becoming a resident artist at MArt Artist Studios in Lisbon from 2015 – 2017. Since 2015 she has participated in international collective exhibitions (UK, Portugal, Italy, Berlin, Slovenia, New York, Dublin, and Savannah), and Solo exhibitions (UK, Portugal and Poland). She has works held in private collections in UK, Portugal, the United States, Germany, Australia, and Poland. Her collages have been featured in magazines and books in USA, Italy, UK, Spain and Portugal. She is a member of Atelier Concorde, a collective and interdisciplinary workspace in Lisbon.
