Prairie with Flowers

Nina Weiss


Oil on canvas

48 x 48 in.


About the Artwork

My oil paintings delve into the layers; colors; and textures created by our natural landscape.  A close up entry into the landscape allows me to concentrate on the formal aspects of painting:  line, gesture, color, and form.

The paintings draw the viewer into a heightened vision of the landscape using layers of grounds, color, and gesture.  I hope to push the work beyond ideas of the traditional landscape; presenting the viewer with a fresh experience.  I tease out the complex colors of nature, creating dynamic layers of contrast, and color.
