Verity Nunan spent the first half of her life living in Nanjing and Shanghai, China - the artist now resides in Federal, where she paints from her studio.
Primarily working with oil stick on canvas, Verity draws her paintings. Her art is an honest exploration of her own experience, articulated through mediums that are immediate, gestural and transparent. She works in a way that disarms the viewer and seduces them into an upside-down topsy-turvy world that questions all human assumptions.
The artist states that “To make art is to be in a state of mind … somewhere that lies between trust, surrender and confidence. A place that's less about rational and more about intuition. The more time I spend in this space, the more convincing the work is to me at the end.”
Considered an early career artist, Verity has exhibited nationally and internationally. Alongside showing with Thomgallery, the artist most recently exhibited at Brunswick St Gallery in Melbourne and has just joined the stable at Studio Gallery.
