Nia Walling’s work centres on domestic or childhood spaces and forms, chosen for their symbolic association or the memory they carry to transform the found and the remembered into visual metaphors. Subjects such as attachment theory and female identity are a continuous thread throughout the work. The artist is interested in how art can be a therapeutic process and how making visible that which is felt but unseen allows an opportunity to reflect on life experience in a more philosophical way.
“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”
― Anaïs Nin
My artwork explores the importance of a mother’s wellbeing to be able to provide safe secure attachments for their children, and considers if brain plasticity during the early postpartum period can offer an opportunity for mother/parent to heal themselves.
