Gladys Nilsson @ Hales Gallery

13 March 2019 - 27 April 2019

Unencumbered, is a solo exhibition of work the artist Gladys Nilsson.  The exhibition features recent watercolours and collages, united by the artist’s distinctive style and good-humoured view of the human condition.
In Nilsson’s practice, she seeks to celebrate the small victories in life. Raised in a blue-collar family, she highlights day to day routines as important – simply the act of getting up, getting dressed and going to work. Monumentalising the humdrum, she plots big moments and absurd twists for the many idiosyncratic characters that fill her works. Playful narratives begin in the palpable world – a self-proclaimed voyeur, she looks closely at human interactions which she then transforms into a universe of her own creation. Favouring humour over realism, fluid limbs unnaturally curve and contort.
