It’s good to be cautious when suggesting resemblances between painters, especially when the comparisons might appear to be exaggerated or even outrageous. On the other hand, it is important to acknowledge threads of the past that run through contemporary work. All worthwhile painting inherits; the acknowledgement of that history, without being limited by it, is the way that the tradition is reinvented.

Courtesy  of the artist When I point out that these paintings by Margot Nimiroski’s suggest something of the 19th century English artist J.M.W.Turner it is not a claim that the work is equivalent, but that it is resonant. There is a way of looking at the vibrant blur that marks the border of water and land which Nimiroski has learned to transpose to canvas in a way that Turner would recognize as having made into a language of his own. Hers do not reach out to the grand narrative scale that he constructed, but within their smaller frame, they are moving and splendid.
