“Nettle Grellier’s works are small-scale and intimate, their raw paper edges mirroring the imperfections of her (and all of our) characters. Her figures turn away from the viewer, avoiding eye-contact, and we are denied the intimate encounter that we are used to in traditional portraiture. Women have been put on full, beautified display throughout art history – through direct eye-contact and welcoming grins, we are given intimate access to the muses and models of visual culture. Grellier’s figures are having none of it. They owe you nothing.” - Verity Babbs review of the work on paper show In Heat at Blue Shop Cottage
