Smartphone snaps: Nell shows art and life at home

Feature

“Like, what about our mortality? And what kind of sexual beings are we? Who are we? What happens to us when we die? How can you reinstate urgency into your life because you know you are going to die?” – Nell

Lightning bolts, textiles, painting, Sonic Youth, smiley faces, and sculpture: with her smartphone, Nell has captured her life and art making in her Sydney home.

In our July/August magazine we profiled ten artists, and asked each artist to document their life with their smartphone. Nell’s snaps detail how she continued creating and thinking about art during the country’s May lockdown. Read our full profile on Nell, where she talks through rock’n’roll and Buddhism, and using symbols to draw upon the moments where language fails.
