THE LAUNCH ISSUE
The launch issue of NURTURE celebrates the work of 9 emerging artists, creatives and more...
Including: Painting, creative writing, poetry and drawing.
With each of the featured artists we have taken a unique spin in conveying who they are. This is all in the hope of further enhancing their work, making each spread personal to the artist as well as producing an engaging experience for the reader. With each article, you are bound to find something that will catch your eye.
The artists and creatives included in this issue are, Imogen Allen, Imogen reveals to us a selection of her paintings. Boka, takes us on a journey through delicate, expressionist graphic drawings. Ned Green tells the short story of ‘Hunt’s Bell’. Adam Leach takes us on an adventure with graphite, showing us a series of drawings. With Nina Mdwaba, we are pulled in, with poetry composed from the heart. Oliver Pearce is an artist whose work is poignant, colourful. There is plenty for the eyes to feast upon. The same can be said about Sarah Savage, whose paintings are mythical, enchanting, with so much to get lost into. On a rather tranquil note, Jeremy Stokes shares his photography, accompanied by some poems of his. Finally, we have Alyina Zaidi, whose vibrant paintings, allow one to travel in time, creating a journey through different landscapes.
NURTURE launch issue also features writing by Peter Carrick who talks about the work of artist Oliver Pearce. In addition, there is a piece toward the end titled: ‘A Space for Criticism’. Written by Rick Sliwinksi, this piece represents an introduction to the idea of ‘criticism’ and what this represents. ‘A Space for Criticism’ will take a permanent spot in future issues of NURTURE publications. On a final note, we have writings in the form of short stories, poetry and more formal writing composed by Matthew Darby - co founder of NURTURE.
