This piece was inspired by the ongoing fight against breast cancer and the inspirational women who have fought the battle, those that have survived and lived as well as those that have struggled and died from this devastating disease.
In our day to day life, we unknowingly overlook, ignore and do not
appreciate the little things. By focusing on, capturing and manipulating
the minute textures, forms, distinctive shapes, underlying power and
natural energy of objects, Nancy brings a whole new dimension to the
viewer. She is determined to create an image that will resonate and
linger in the viewer's memory, opening a whole new world to appreciate.
The subject matter of many of Nancy's paintings and drawings are
derived from her close-up photographs capturing the sometimes overlooked
beauty and abstraction of nature, human anatomy/physiology and organic
objects. Her popular Internalscape paintings depict a surrealistic
network of internal organic forms, cells, vein/artery-like shapes
intertwining, interconnecting, and layered like a protective living
network. Nancy's Internalscape images demonstrate a vibrant yet
comforting, securing, protective network of living, pliable,
interconnecting shapes: Layers of web-like animated organic forms. The
viewers are drawn into the intricate stimulating Vital Network of
intertwining colors and shapes.
Vulnerable, connecting, disconnecting, concealing, enclosing,
protecting. Intricate textured layers hiding, securing, releasing,
holding back. The internal/external battle, continuous visual and
non-visual conflict many of us face...these are all words to describe
