Nettle Grellier (b.1993), Stroud, UK, graduated with a BA in Fine Art from the University of Brighton in 2015, before completing the Turps Banana Correspondence Course in 2020. Her work has been exhibited in the United Kingdom, United States, Europe and Australia. Recent solo exhibitions include Soho Revue, Huxley Parlour and Coma Gallery (Australia). Her work is in the private collection of Soho House. She is now based in Cornwall, UK.

At once grotesque and beautiful, Grellier’s unsettling and playful imagery also considers intimacy, the body, and the gendered dynamic of social relations. Takes inspiration from her rural upbringing during the reign of Heat magazine, and now from her hometown in Cornwall, with long-standing traditions of storytelling and folklore coupled with the small-town rumour mill. Grellier explores themes surrounding gossip: its position as an inherently feminine pastime, its ability to create intra and para-social relationships, and its social value. At both small and large scales, Grellier’s subjects snigger behind raised hands, give onlooking viewers sideways glances, and grimace conspiratorially from beyond the picture plane.
