Nancy Crewe


After studying Fine Art at Falmouth University, Nancy has continued to live and work in Falmouth, Cornwall.

Her preoccupation with place and the landscape is the main influence for her work, attempting to capture part of the Genis Loci of a place. Looking at the relationship between painter and place, Nancy aims to transpose this connection on to canvas.

Working mainly from films she has collected from car windows, train journeys and walks, Nancy is able to continue to experience the landscape while watching the films back in her studio. She then approaches painting in stages, building up layers of paint. With each wash an image can be morphed into the memory of what has been seen and experienced; creating an image which alludes to the distortion of memory due to our emotional connection with particular places.

Nancy regularly exhibits work with Beside The Wave Gallery.
