Curated by Jo McLaughlin
Nadia's works balance between the real and the surreal, transporting us to distant, hazy lands. Vintage, pastel tones and an illustrative approach imbue her works with a dreamlike feel that is further enhanced by her meticulous collaging. Capturing the world through her analogue and digital cameras, she layers fragmented scenes to create her charming imagined landscapes. The images become multifaceted tableaux, combining unexpected objects, settings and colours to construct uncanny depictions of desirable destinations. A journey into idealism and paradise, Nadia applies washes, paints, ink and chalk onto the final edition works.
Nadia has successfully exhibited at The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2019, 2016 and 2023. Her work is featured in VOGUE, The New York Times, The Guardian, Aesthetica Magazine, Enki Magazine, Ideal Home, Homes and Gardens. She regularly exhibits with her gallery Wills Art Warehouse at The Affordable Art Fair and with The Other Art Fair and Saatchi Art in London, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
Nadia graduated from The University of Arts London in 1999 with a Postgraduate in Photojournalism. She lives in London.
