8 March - 3 June 2018
It’s with great pleasure that we welcome NE/LL to the Walkway Gallery, Bordertown. We are very proud to be collaborating with the Art Gallery of South Australia to present another of Australia’s foremost contemporary artists - the artist known simply as Nell.
Born in 1975 in Maitland, NSW, Nell has a signature style that is instantly recognisable: a fusion of religious iconography with a rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic.
Recent major works and collaborations include The National: New Australian Art 2017, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2017); WORDS + CROSSES, Ramp Gallery, Wikato Institute of Technology, New Zealand (2017); Namatjira Project Auction, Tarnanthi, Art Gallery of South Australia (2017), Adelaide; NE/LL, Shepparton Art Museum, Victoria (2016); commissioned performances and installations at MONA FOMA (2012), Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) and La Maison Rouge, Paris (2013); and The Oracle, Spring/Summer collaboration with Romance Was Born for Australian Fashion Week (2012).
Nell is a 2018 Carriageworks Clothing Store Studio Resident and is represented by Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery Sydney and STATION, Melbourne.
