Vanessa Notley

Born in: 1965

United Kingdom


Vanessa Notley is especially attentive, in her work, to shape an element of language, like a word, a phrase, a particular proverb that seems arked by a sense of ridiculous, clumsy or old.

The question of the limit between interior and exterior is central in her creation. Everything that constitutes an obstacle, everything that doesn't allow moving towards another space, physical or intellectual, speaks to her. Her work of drawing and sculpture plays with the visual aspect of things, their apparent meanings and possible counter-meanings.

The animal or human figure is used to display the pictorial process. She tries, often with a cold humor, to give a form to all of this.
