StateoftheART is delighted to present Karla Nixon's first solo exhibition with the gallery, CREASE. 
Paper and fabric are used for quite different purposes but share common physical characteristics which are highlighted in these works. In CREASE, Nixon recontextualises textiles through her reinterpretation of their essence in paper. This body of contemporary abstract work is both precise and poetic.
"These latest works depart from the comfort of the white page which has become synonymous with my aesthetic, as well as a major shift from figurative to abstract. I have attempted to introduce bold explosions of colour created with washes of acrylic paint. Even with the introduction of paint and colour the materiality of the paper is still in the fore, creating colourful, textural tapestry-like abstract work " - Karla Nixon
