Exploring the artist’s bold DIY works at the intersection of the illusionary and the factual.
It’s been four months now since artist India Nielsen participated at “The Pink Panther Show” group exhibition, held at Gallery 46, where she showed text and imagery in her work for the first time. Now, she’s currently preparing her Degree Show at the RCA, in which she will present modular aluminium frames that can be swapped and rearranged with the paintings, becoming on an equal level with the works. Her studio has slowly emptied out, allowing as much space as possible around her, “maybe just keeping what I absolutely need to make whatever I’m working on at that time. I don’t like to pin images up on to the walls but I rather keep it quite neutral, so I can change it depending on whatever new works I’m making.” To learn more about India’s process, we visited her shared studio space; a corner of her artistic universe filled with nothing more than her works.
