Painter and calligrapher Nathalie Moisy is an inter-disciplinary artist based in Oxford. Nathalie's work investigates a range of subject matter which includes nature, landscapes and the power and intricacy of human relationships. She favours using traditional media such as ink, brushes and papers and natural pigments, for example gofun, a white pigment derived from shells left to weather naturally for decades. Much of her aesthetic is borne from her many years spent living in Japan, and her MA research in Modern Japonisme.
Nathalie says, 'Although not exclusively an art activist, I often challenge viewers to see beyond the surface of visual representation, being abstract or representational. My work is layered with meaning, metaphors and visual cues all interpreted with techniques, materials and processes relevant to the subject matter.'
