New Blood Art Statement

Nina Goldsmiths work revolves around the sense of belonging. The lost landscapes of forgotten buildings and far away countryside allude to connections between people and place, of identifying with somewhere. The landscapes seem both visceral and universal, the use of texture reaches out and burnishes our senses. Vivid colours and dark shadows give a sense of depth, both physically and emotionally. There is an emotional charge within each piece in regards to the intimacy of recognising a place as somewhere full of memories - however banal. Perhaps this is why the graffiti on the wall in the ‘Searching and Finding’ study provokes a sense of, not only abandonment, but of being found again. 

Artist Statement

I am an esteemed visual artist with three awards behind me, residing at Southside Studios in Govanhill. My work encompasses a variety of concept such as perception of place, memory, emotion and individual experience, expressing them through different subjects including landscape, interior, portraiture, geometry and the abstract.

Whether it is looking into how the emotional significance of a place impacts an individual’s perception of it, or exploring the transient, fading nature of memory, each subject is explored through the textural and tonal, with thick enamels, intense hues and colours used to intensify the emotional resonance of a painting and to create an impression of an ethereal or stark atmosphere.

To be an artist is to stretch your limits everyday, using the brush as a compass to navigate your understanding of the world around you and how it influences your perception on a daily basis.
