Rising-Star Nana Wolke Features in Bloomberg New Contemporaries

Nana Wolke, Thrown Out (2021). Oil on linen. 120 x 81 cm. Courtesy the artist.

Nana Wolke's painting was a highlight for us at Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2021, on view at South London Gallery until 20 February 2022.

⁠⁠Graduating from Goldsmith's with an MFA last year, Nana Wolke's portfolio is filled with crimson-hued snapshots of theatrical props, such as a cowboy jacket or a pair of leather pants taken from unusual vantage points. ⁠⁠

Framing her objects against a red hunting light, her canvases carry a tactility about them that immediately draws you in, akin to the work of 2021's rising-star Issy Wood. ⁠⁠Her debut London solo show Nana Wolke: High Seat is currently on view at Castor Gallery.
