Nancy Barwell

Nancy Barwell is a French artist working with photography, painting and drawing. Trained as a psychoanalyst, she draws her ideas and artistic concepts from the deep subconscious and from the writings of psychoanalysts or psychiatrists.

"In the countries which I explore by walking and travelling, the creation of my works always begins with a series of photographs. These shots constitute the first elements of my work. It can be photos of waste industrial land, of passers by where I live, urban landscapes, drying washing hanging at the windows or of natural sites.

Once back in my studio, the physical displacement is followed by the displacement of the medium chosen in accordance with the future work."
