After studying at the University of Reading, Nancy Milner came here to complete a postgraduate diploma at the Royal Academy Schools, subsequently graduating in 2013. She constructs paintings that use colour and form to investigate light and space in painting. She is particularly interested in the relationship between painting and architectural spaces, and how the question of ‘what to do’ in a space influences painting.
Group exhibitions and venues to showcase Milner’s work include Form from Form at Matthews Yard, The Zetter Hotel, JM Finn offices, Architectural Fragments at Apiary Studios and a solo show at The Fisher Theatre in Bungay, Suffolk. Her residencies include: Abbey Scholar in Painting and The British School at Rome (2014 – 2015). Already collecting prizes early in her career, Milner has been awarded the Keeper’s Print Prize, the Jerwood Painting Prize and a bursary from the Artists’ Collecting Society.
Her work can found in The Jerwood Collection and the Hiscox Collection.
