Nina Torr

Nina Torr born 1987, is an artist/illustrator based in Tshwane. After obtaining her BFA from Parsons School of Design in 2010, Torr returned to South Africa, commenting that living and studying in New York enabled her to appreciate how full living in South Africa is. Torr is a lecturer in illustration at the Open Window in Tshwane and is busy with her Mtech at The University of Johannesburg. Torr has held a number of solo exhibitions as well as participating in group shows, sometimes under the pseudonym Andy Wyeth.

Torr’s work explores subverted spaces inhabited by characters pursuing a journey of sorts. Her characters insinuate narratives that are suggested, yet remain open-ended. The viewer as such becomes a participant in concluding these narratives by engaging with them on a personal level. The titles for these prints are taken from songs by Bob Dylan and The Talking Heads. These are combined with imagery that pays tribute to miniatures, illuminated manuscripts and early explorers journals.

"In this series, I try to make sense of histories beyond my own recollection and understanding through a series of personal creation myths. The environments act as metaphors for mental landscapes and the characters navigate and explore these spaces in an attempt to make sense of their surroundings and experiences". Nina Torr, 2019
