Michaela Nash is a recently graduated artist/arts writer, born in Belfast, NI. Her work is conceptually driven and has taken shape through painting, photography, video installation and sculpture. Her work has explored themes of mixed identity/geology, belonging/place, and native/foreign plant species. She is a member of the Lucida Collective. Their recent collaborative project ‘Infinite Becomings’ coexisted in NCAD Gallery in Spring 2021. Previous group exhibitions include; ‘Hiatus’, 126 Gallery, Galway (2019) and ‘Small Worlds’, Strand Arts Center, Belfast (2018).
Her writing spans experimental art writing; incorporating prose, poetry or personal essay into hybridised texts. Each becomes an ekphrastic layer to an artwork or exhibition. Her writing has been published in 'Propagate' a Catalyst Arts Belfast publication (2020), Wolfgang Tillmans' 'Today is the First Day' exhibition publication with IMMA Ireland (2019) and the first RHA Gallery Young Art Writers Zine (2018).
