Member Show: “Black Corset” – Nancy Cuevas

 

Art On Broadway is proud to exhibit works by Nancy Cuevas for the month of October. Her work will be displayed from October 1- November 1, 2014. The reception will be held on October 11,
from 6-9pm.

In describing her painting , Nancy says,” When working out a composition, I look for bold contrast between shadow and light, a distinct characteristic or essence from the sitter, and strong design elements. Setting out the paints, mixing color, and figuring out exactly what I am seeing is very meditative as the work takes on a life of its own. My subjects become very familiar to me as I deconstruct their physical forms and rebuild them again on 2d canvas. There is something joyful in recreating a moment in time. Unlike a photograph that freezes its image with the click of a shutter, my paintings capture a liveliness derived from my experience of the sitter for the duration that it takes me to paint it.

I am inspired by the beauty of the human figure and nature. In my work I seek beauty, love and joy which in the end is what connects us all.”
