Shows a view of a nude woman from the back, in black white and some pink. She is sitting on the floor leaning slightly backwards with her hands supporting her. The background is brown. Graffitti style lettering 'nemo' runs vertically up the left side in white.
Graeme Nimmo studied portraiture at Glasgow School of Art. This print, entitled Nemo, combines traditional etching technique with street art-influenced spray paint stencilling, which creates the dripping paint effect.
The letters ‘GM’ echo graffiti writing, where artists mark their territory with their names. The model emerges from the wall with an almost ghost-like quality. The figure is detailed with simple light and shadow. Although this print is unmistakably modern, it refers back to a more traditional art form, portraiture. Nimmo’s work updates an old genre with contemporary visual language. The simple beauty of a human figure is celebrated with ‘rough-around-the-edges’ visuals.
