Shani Nottingham / Artlands 2023

A multi-disciplinary artist, my practice is pieced together from many strands — from illustration & commercial work to conceptual art, collages, mixed media, photography, sculptural forms & installation. In recent years I have been working with single use plastic breadtags, transforming them from mundane initial purpose to create something ‘other’. 

Whatever the medium, I am drawn to pattern & colour, line & repetition.The theme of collecting is consistent too, as I find solace in the process of creating order from chaos, observing similarities & disparities. I search & find small elements of both beauty & comfort in everyday life, finding moments & objects that bind & comfort, or confront & surprise.
