Nadine Stewart(Ireland/Berlin) did an art production residency which is developed to support international female artists living in Berlin at SOMA.
She will show a series of new drawings on paper and wood in this solo exhibition at SOMA Gallery. Drawing is a fundamental part of Nadine’s practice where she uses simple elements to create intricate, labor intensive images. Repetition and process are recurring themes in these works.
Initially Nadine used drawing as a means of illustrating different spaces to convey unrealized sculptural installation ideas. The progression of making these sketches of lines in space and using the simplest of elements to fill blank space on a piece of paper gave her the necessary balance to her sculptural installation works.
