Lot 75 - Nettle Grellier - In the Love that gives Us Ourselves (Portrait of Muriel Rukeyser)
Pencil and coloured pencil on paper
Signed on Verso
Nettle's work considers the figure through several semi-autobiographical motifs: disobedient dogs, soft bodies, and disquieting, gossiping subjects. Taking influences from artists such as Paula Rego and Dolly Parton, she uses references across high and low culture to delight in unashamedly slovenly, feral, and unpredictable womanhood. Based in Cornwall, and having always lived and worked in rural settings, Nettle also examines the nature of gossip and storytelling as tradition.
