Hold on by Nina Torr

US $287.96

Nina Torr (b. 1987) creates artworks in the blurry overlap between fine art and illustration. The subjects she depicts seem to exist in similarly indistinct territory – imaginary, internal landscapes are populated with otherworldly figures and what Torr describes as ‘sad animals putting on brave faces’. Parallel worlds seem to have lost track of time and collided awkwardly, the result a disorienting but enthralling medley of biblical, mythological and historical imagery – inspired by old woodcuts and encyclopaedias, illuminated manuscripts, and amateur natural history illustrations. In contrast to her somewhat apprehensive subject matter, Torr’s technique is anything but. She works mostly in ink and gouache and demonstrates impressive, resolute line work that has developed over the hundreds of pages of her sketchbooks.

Torr (also known by her former pseudonym Andy Wyeth) obtained her BFA from the Parsons School of Design in New York in 2010, her master’s degree in 2020 at the University of Johannesburg and has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions in New York, Berlin and across South Africa. She teaches illustration at Open Window in Pretoria and has had her illustrations featured in numerous publications.
