Fauna I (Ghost) © Nina Büsing Corvallo
I first met Nina during the first days of the MA program we attended at NYU/ICP. I was immediately drawn to her as a person, but through the many critiques we endured together, I really became close with her work as well. Knowing the person behind the art has always enhanced my appreciation for the work. Some viewers like to take work at face value - to see if it can stand alone without the crutch of a personality. Knowing Nina has (as I see it) added another dimension to her work. Her images are serene, yet mystical; familiar yet other-worldly. It's the kind of work that envelopes you like a blanket on a cold, rainy day and you never want to get out from underneath it.
