Winner of Threadneedle Figurative Prize 2008

I was looking for another subject matter in a derelict corner of London, when in front of me a pool of light appeared, momentarily transforming the bleak pavement and wall from the mundane into something sublime.

Nina Murdoch studied at the Slade School of Fine Art (1989 – 93) and the Royal Academy School (1993 – 96). She has been winning art awards since 1983 when she won 1st Prize in the National Gallery Children’s Competition. She is currently working towards a solo show at Fine Art Society in Spring 2009.
 
Nina’s luminous urban landscapes are a powerful emotional response to her native streets of South London. She aims to capture the fundamentals and essence of a landscape that others see as unprepossessing or even ominous. She uses a technique fashioned in the early renaissance, working in egg on gesso panels.
