Eva Nolan is interested in the development of observational methodologies and representations of the natural world throughout art and scientific history. Currently studying a Masters of Fine Arts at UNSW Art and Design, Nolan is influenced by Renaissance naturalism through to current methods of atomic visualization. Her practice attempts to synthesize traditional and contemporary modes of perceiving the organic world to create enigmatic constructs that are neither past nor present. Nolan’s highly intricate, graphite drawings are created with the aid of a magnifying glass, enabling the artist to form minute, autonomous ecosystems that exist in a delicate balance of growth, decay and transformation.
