The work of Not Now Nancy stages a dichotomy between a pastoral past and a modern urbanism, bringing conflicting themes together into a harmonious and compellingly beautiful blend. Her prints are a fusion of layers, building found, antique illustrations into hand drawn elements and symbolic contemporary imagery to achieve a unique and captivating aesthetic.
‘Marionette’ features an assemblage of weird and wonderful parts, resulting in a deeply surreal aesthetic. A greyscale illustration of a ribcage and pelvis sits at the heart of the print, its vertebrae replaced with a series of mechanical workings and devices. At the shoulder blades, Not Now Nancy has added a majestic pair of butterfly wings, detailed in soft shades of lilac and sky-blue, and edged with drips of black pigment and hand applied gold leaf, for texture and definition. It’s a hypnotic piece, dark and haunting and saturated with breathtaking beauty.
