Welcome to Nelly’s room, this blog is a gathering place for the various essays I’ve been writing on the topic of contemporary art.
The title refers to my childhood name for a place where lost items could be found spirited away, but also for me a place of imagination and escape. A place which still has resonance with my creative endeavours as a visual artist who has found it hard to maker her work visible.
The title also seemed appropriate to where I currently find myself with my writing i.e. wanting to share ideas but needing to create a safe space and so I am inviting readers in to this room of my own. This room of my own also referring to feminist concerns that are a back drop and sometimes more overtly expressed in my writing.
Until now writing has been a private activity but this space will hopefully provide an opportunity for dialogue and exchange and I welcome any responses to the thoughts and ideas presented here.
