Sep 17 - Oct 22, 2020
Cara Nahaul’s vibrant paintings explore the character of spaces, from quiet domestic interiors to idyllic public gardens. Her work examines our relationship with our environment, and the shifts in perception around the value of objects within and outside of her paintings.
Nahaul draws upon visual cues picked up during periods of research and travel as well as memories from her familial archive. Taking inspiration from her childhood visits to Malaysia and Mauritius, her work invites viewers to imagine how they might mine, reconstruct and reflect upon their own personal histories. The paintings presented in Impossible Garden are spaces to dismantle fixed boundaries, and suggest ways interiors and landscapes can become vessels for intimate memories or charged introspection.
Cara Nahaul (b. 1987, London, UK) is an artist living and working in London. She received a BA from Goldsmiths University, London and an MFA from Parsons The New School for Design, New York. Her work has been the subject of recent solo exhibitions at Trade Gallery and Christine Park Gallery. She has been selected for the John Moores prize twice, the inaugural Jerwood Painting Fellowship, nominated for the Contemporary British Painting Prize and completed a yearlong studio residency at the Florence Trust.
