About Nina Fraser

Nina Fraser creates artworks that utilise the tension between parameters - the boundaries between the inner realm and the projected outer world. Working in a range of media including collage, painting, assemblage and sculpture, the artist seeks to question notions of memory and place, exposing the fragility of our constructed reality. Embodying the attitude of a bricoleur, she explores the possibilities of her immediate landscape through what already exists, has been overlooked or undervalued. Central to Nina’s practice is a quest for metaphorical and material transformation through a subconscious detachment to the pre-assumed symbols of consumer paraphernalia found in everyday life.
