Biography

Nadja Plein (b. 1978, British-Swiss) is a visual artist who approaches her paintings as an almost too open and too exposed entity, vulnerable to infection and invasion. Her recent works place subjectivity on the line, daring to get lost in the material of paint as a sense of raw meditation. Nadja explores a kind of immanence that is possible within painting, searching for the unknown, and the unknowable. Nadja lives and works in London, UK.
