Eve Nettles is an Atlanta based artist, designer and amateur farmer. She works from studio space at the Goat Farm among a vibrant artist collective. Nettles experiments with form and material studying nature and its relation to the body. Her work includes functional spatial designs, sculptural installations and paintings. At the moment in studio she is focused on a large scale series of water color paintings “aqueous bodies”. Nettles combines elements of soil, seashells and sumi ink from collected pigments through her travels to Morocco and last year she lived in Barcelona. The narratives of these pieces explore and echo the close connections of vulnerability and resilience. Aspiring to embody temporal place, she is interested in the decay of matter, nature’s ability to restore organisms structures and produce fertile ground.
