NightingaleBook - 2008
Nightingale makes work out of the environment around her. Like many before - and the heritage of watercolour in Canterbury is a long and rich one (think of Page, Stoddart, Angus, Lusk and Spencer-Bower, to name but a few) - Nightingale's practice is rooted in the direct observation of things and people around her. Focused on collecting and filtering experiences of the local and the familiar, Nightingale paints with an honesty and immediacy that lends her work real integrity and a feel that is at once fresh and contemporary, but also oddly nostalgic.
