A solo exhibition of work by award-winning artist Maureen Nathan is opening this June at The Fitzrovia Gallery, London. ‘Beneath The Moon & Under The Sun’ brings together works on paper produced over the last two and a half years.
Exploring and responding to the world around her, Nathan’s series of artworks bear witness to the outbreak of Covid and the months following. Opening with solitary silhouettes in moonlit gardens, tangled branches cloaked in darkness and obscurity, and unfurling into a colourful confetti of blooming flora, ‘Beneath The Moon & Under The Sun’ puts into visual form a timeline that maps not just night and day or the changing seasons, but Nathan’s own illuminations.
Through a variety of mediums – painting, collage and printmaking – Nathan uses the physical environment as a vehicle for discovery and enlightenment, taking what’s in front of her and turning it into a beautiful, dream-like narrative.
Reflecting on her surroundings, she says, “the natural world steadfastly follows its own rhythms, season after season, on land and on sea, and is an endless source of inspiration and solace.”
Born and raised on the West Coast of Canada, Maureen settled in the UK as a young adult. She divides her time between her home and studio in North London and her workspace in rural Dorset. Her work has been shown with the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, The Royal Academy, Wells Art Contemporary and the Royal West of England Academy.
