With inspirations ranging from ballet and folk music, to London’s evolving skyline and New York’s unique swagger and hustle, to the colours and textures of her Indian heritage, Nina’s work finds beauty in exquisite detail of colour, texture and structure.
“Nina Dolan’s paintings are like statements of belief, exuberant acts of witness to the glory of the world. Although reminiscent of things seen, they are by no means illustrative, being composed of strong colour and expressive linear forms in space. Resolutely abstract, they are pleasurable, beautiful, intriguing. They encourage the enquiring eye to make associational links with personal experience and thus their imagery can find its way to the very heart of specific memories.” Andrew Lambirth, writer, critic and curator
