"Memories of places, memories of imaginary places - memories disintegrate and fade with time, akin to a collection of bleaching photographs that date years back. How do we revisit these places? Through dreams, through the broken down memories or through expectations? When we recreate the places in our minds, we reconstruct a land with fantastical flourish and luminous fluorescence. We are creating a patchwork land of our dream lands, hoisting onto the unforgettable elements of these memories and desperately trying to recollect those that are fading away."

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.
