Nancy Cohen is an artist determinedly out of sync with the times. While the rest of the world is plastered to their screens, her oil paintings of landscapes and still-lifes evoke the quiet richness of past centuries. Whether it's simple objects on a shelf or the road through a field, Nancy's paintings are about serenity, abundance, fragility, and the pure beauty of light. - Nancy paints only from life - never a photograph - for it is realness, dimensionality, and imperfection that inspire her. She eschews romanticism - she is not trying to "pretty up" anything. She wants to show the beauty of the real - for it is the evidence of use and age in objects, people, and nature that create beauty.
Nancy studied at the Art Students League of New York with Gregg Kreutz. She lives in New Paltz, New York.
