Light Art

Nancy did some of her finest work in the last decade of her life. Her paintings are complex, vibrant and masterful in technical facility. They show a coalescence of consistent elements, markers of a career in painting that ultimately display a clear, unique, and individual vision. Her favorite themes are repeated in both overt and subtle ways: animals; the smoking hand; nostalgia-evoking objects (e.g., polka-dotted gloves and cow fabric); truncated torsos giving us an animal viewpoint or thwarting the objectification of women’s bodies; and her remarkable balance of dignity and humor.
