Biography

Nettle Grellier’s work is characterised by her use of soft fleshy pinks and reds, coupled with earthy browns and greens. Grellier explores the notion of touch in her work, seeking to make us more comfortable and aware of bodily presence. Predominantly figurative, her work focusses on the relationship between her subjects and their own awareness of self. In her most recent work, her figures interact and touch in unexpected ways, challenging our notions of intimacy and established social behaviours. It also grounds the figures in their natural landscape, exploring the natural world in a sensory way.

Grellier was born in 1993. She graduated with a BA in Fine Art Painting from the University of Brighton in 2015, before completing the Turps Banana Correspondence Course in 2020. Her work has been exhibited in the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia.
