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.
‘Monarch II’ features an assemblage of weird and wonderful parts, resulting in a deeply surreal aesthetic. Greyscale etchings of stags heads, rearing stallions, patterned pheasants, and autumnal leaves coalesce
into the vague shape of a majestic body, while patches of intense blue-bottle pigment and hand applied gold leaf add texture and definition. It’s a hypnotic piece, dark and haunting and saturated with breathtaking beauty.
