Nancy Anne works with themes of knowledge and sight in drawings, textiles and wallpaper installations. Her practice is concerned with unsettling the eye and creating restrained images with stripes and tone-on-tone. McPhee’s mediums ask something of the viewer, to reposition themselves in order for the image to become visible or to generally participate in a more active viewing process.
