Shadowy - Fiona MacDonald

"Nadine Feinson’s paintings act on the edges of vision, where the semi-formed emerges as monstrous. Teasing and delicate, the oil paint reveals uncertain things. There is in Feinson’s paintings the echo of the surrealist spirit, of Ernst’s restless experimentation, here driven more by a need for invention than mastery. The image comes through an act of articulation of the medium and idea simultaneously so that the shape shifting nature of the paint embodies the monstrous nature of the chimera."

Text for the exhibition 'Shadowy', written by Fiona MacDonald, curator at the Standpoint Gallery, London. 16-18 February 2008
