Workplace Foundation is delighted to announce Permanent Marker, a solo exhibition by British artist Nina Chua.
The exhibition will present a selection of recent wall-based and sculptural works on paper. Using permanent marker pen, Chua uses repetition and line to build up dense, contemplative works that explore the threshold between drawing and object. Shown here in combination, her sculptural and wall based explorations oscillate between absence and presence and destabilise the viewers perception both spatially and temporally.
Nina Chua lives and works in Manchester. She studied at Manchester School of Art and completed her MA in Fine Art in 2011. In 2016 she was selected for the Liverpool Biennial Associate Artist Programme. In 2020 her work was selected for the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize.
Chua has exhibited nationally and internationally including: Nakata Museum, Hiroshima; Castlefield Gallery, Manchester; Baltic 39, Newcastle; DOX Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague and Workplace Gallery, Gateshead. Her work is held in the collections of The Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester; Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester; The Centre for Artist’s Books at Dundee Contemporary Arts, Dundee; and Simmons and Simmons Contemporary Art Collection.
