Sarah Wiseman Gallery announces Change, Transience, Harmony a solo exhibition by painter and calligrapher Nathalie Moisy, an inter-disciplinary artist based in Oxford. Nathalie’s work investigates a range of subject matter which includes nature, landscapes and the power and intricacy of human relationships. She favours using traditional media such as ink, brushes and papers and natural pigments, such as gofun, a white pigment derived from shells left to weather naturally for decades. Much of her aesthetic is borne from her many years spent living in Japan, and her MA research in Modern Japonisme.
In her solo exhibition, Nathalie follows two lines of enquiry that flow and harmonise together. In the first, Nathalie immerses us in a series of large-scale, semi-abstracted paintings, which provoke an instinctive reaction of the viewer; one of familiarity and calm as if looking down at the surface of our blue planet, in all its varying shades.
The colour blue’s impact on us as humans, is innate. ’Amongst many of its associated meanings,’ Nathalie explains ’Dark blue shows intelligence, authority, dignity and truth, bright blue means cleanliness, strength, whilst light blue shows peace, serenity and infinity.’
