Visual artist Nancy Paul draws, paints, carves, and collages on stone, glass, and ceramic.
SMALL OBJECTS OF DEVOTION
Nancy’s travertine and glass works of shells, fish, insects, birds, and creatures such as turtles and frogs capture the flow of life, yet suggest the ghostly transition between population and extinction.
She regards her faux fossils as “small objects of devotion,” to be held and caressed, to remind us of our precious connections and the tenuous state of the world’s ecosystems.
Nancy considers her larger pieces to be “architectural art”, intended not so much for hanging decoratively as to be incorporated into the very design of the structure where they will be placed.
