Ashleigh Ninos' Profile

About

After focusing on subjects from life using oils, Ashleigh's recent work has shifted into exploring abstraction with dyes on paper. New Hampshire raised and California residing, Ashleigh’s Forecast Series grew organically out of her craving for the psychological weight weather carries; a reflection of her geographic move and seasons missed. Drawing a parallel to the affect of hearty weather, Ashleigh utilizes the inherent properties of her materials: the paper soaks, warps and stretches under the weight of water; altered and stained as a trace to the dip-dying process.

“I watched the flooded willow trees bend in the wind, and the moss on the dead cypress in the bays straighten and fall, and the sunlight danced and shattered on the water when the surface suddenly wrinkled from one shore to the next.”
