On this episode, Nina Temple and I caught up on Thinking of Art and it was a delight! Nina Temple enjoys working with the unpredictable. Working with ink is a combination of manipulating the movement of water, which requires visual improvisation, as well as having patience with what can take a long time to dry.
She is captivated by biomorphic shapes and her approach to form is done in a non-objective intuitive manner, often referred to as “organic abstraction.” The shapes she creates are a direct reflection of her interests in life, which includes her love for art, music, nature, traveling and hiking throughout the world.
Key influencers for Temple have been Georgia O’Keefe, Jean Arp, Paul Jenkins, Helen Frankenthaler, Ida Kohlmeyer, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Joan Miro, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and Henry Moore.
