NADIA FAY, Storm Series (Belmont)

storm series 4.1

On view at Belmont September 5th – October 15th
Reception 4-6pm Sunday, September 15th

“Storm Series continues to investigate my creative interest in the structure of the natural world. Much like my previous body of work, Imaginary Landscapes, which consist of large, highly-textured and abstracted paintings on canvas, these new works delve into how artistic process and naturally occurring phenomena share visual and tactile properties, including patterning, layering, additive and subtractive elements.

These new works begin primarily in a black, white and gray palette, beginning to recreate sweeping terrestrial and atmospheric formations and abstractions; they follow with layers of pigment and ink washes, technical gouache and acrylic applications. They attempt to map both the sky below and the space beyond, whether cosmic or geographic, creating an expanse between and an extension above. The viewer looks upward with some, or repositions as a satellite looking down upon land and sea in others, or yet other times is caught between. Collectively, they follow, document and forecast their own dynamic weather system. From pigment clouds to frenzied electric line-work to the nightly shadows of star clouds, they create their own story of their storm.”
