Nancy R. Wise Biography
I began my career training in the artistic traditions at the University of Utah - color theory, design, drawing, and the special rigors of oil paint. Later working under a successful artist I reproduced the masters allowing me to understand their techniques and effects. Over more than 40 years I evolved through many styles from Renaissance, to Impressionist to Abstract, inevitably leading to my personal expression. Success has come in my current artistic incarnation with representation at Fabrik Projects Gallery, art shows in Los Angeles and Palm Springs, a solo show at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts and group shows at the Pasadena Art Show, City of Brea Art Gallery, ArtShare LA and Beyond
the Lines Art Gallery, Each artist, using their unique expression, communicates a message. For me as an artist a true aesthetic experience is born in silence. A linking between viewer and the viewed in a silent stream of consciousness. It is the beginning of a dialog before memories awaken and concepts form. An inexpressible mystery that the viewer then makes personal in images and words. A truly transformational art then continues to create an evolving and ongoing dialog of new images and words. Evoking that moment and its evolution is my challenge. I love the vibrancy of bright colors, thick impasto-like textures against thin washes and strong forms to communicate an experience of a subject’s essence. It is my way to abstract and transform our ordinary experiences and reawaken an appreciation of life’s vibrant aesthetic.
