Barbara Nicholls: Sedimentary Flow is the first substantial publication on the British artist Barbara Nicholls, who has been producing work for over 30 years.
Nicholls is best known for her monumental watercolour works, on which this book focuses. These paintings emerge by manipulating the behaviour of pigment in ever-increasing quantities of water. As such, their production remains consistent with Nicholls’ artistic practice for over three decades, where she has stitched, drawn, cut, built and otherwise extracted her media from sites of chaos.
With a specially commissioned text by Martin Holman, whose writing on contemporary and modern visual art appears regularly in Cura, Frieze, ArtReview and Art Monthly, this publication thoughtfully contextualises Nicholls’ practice within a wider debate between art practice as creation and art practice as documentation.
Barbara Nicholls: Sedimentary Flow is published in both English and German language edition.
