Portrait of Heather Nevay

Exploring relationships

Initially, Nevay’s works appear eerie and disconcerting, portraying strange animals with human features and sinister children engaged in play that has a ritualistic element. While they do have this sinister edge, Nevay depicts children to understand the broader dynamic of human relationships, and universal themes such as heroism, weakness and fear.

Children at play

Nevay works with oils to create her figurative portraits, and is meticulous with her use of colour. She paints children playing, and has an interest in games where children play traditional societal roles. Nevay examines the nature of children’s games to explore childhood as not only a frightening experience, but also as the foundation of adulthood.

International success

Nevay has exhibited widely both in the UK and in the USA. In 2002 she was the winner at the prestigious Discerning Eye Exhibition, and in 2016 she won the Royal Scottish Academy Maude Gemmell Hutchison Prize. Nevay is also an elected member of the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts.
