Femmage #2 by Nicola Grellier.
Created using cut paper with acrylic and paper collage on board
Board size: 107cm x 153cm
Following directly from UnDone the series Femmage takes the same shapes to a slightly larger almost monumental scale. In a further undoing, Grellier takes patterns from earlier paintings and drawings and fills the clothing silhouettes with these repeats, constructing strong ‘bodies’ with simple materials, visible workings and repetitive actions.
Size: H:153 cm x W:107 cm

Nicola Grellier was born in Canada in 1966 and moved to London aged 1. She studied at Wimbledon and Chelsea Schools of Art in the mid 80s and lives in Stroud, Gloucestershire. Grellier is studying MA Fine Art at UWE Bristol 2017-2020. Nicola Grellier uses materials and methods which may be considered uncontemporary and of low value. Her practice often involves lengthy investments of making-time which connect with a lifelong interest in and practice of what’s traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’. Grellier aims to provoke an awkward sense of relevance and attempts to make concrete the extraordinary brevity of moments of clarity/ happiness with these foolhardy activities. Grellier employs mundane objects and materials as describers of human space such as clothing, chairs, room screens, brown paper, wool, discarded plastic, pill packets and pencil to examine emotional states of vulnerability and confidence and the collision of body and consciousness.
