In A Place in The Crowd, Nadine Lineham co-opts images from contemporary digital media that bombard our daily lives.
Merging figuration with abstraction allows Lineham to capture the psychological state of her subject(s) in an authentic way. Her paintings show passages that lead from photo-realist definition to near abstracted formlessness.
Her figures occupy environments that range from the menacing, to empty voids. The brush strokes, shapes, colour and line all combine to create form and structure to her compositions. Resulting in the formation of marks and motifs that have a degree of velocity, establishing a physical engagement with the viewer and translating into an experience and structure that is felt.
Nadine Lineham lives and works in Gippsland. She has been a finalist in; The EMSLA Eutick Memorial Still Life Award, Coffs Harbour Regional Art Gallery, The John Leslie Art Prize, Gippsland Art Gallery and The Williamstown Festival Of Contemporary Art, Substation Newport.
