About

Spring Linden is a unique Gouache on Paper artwork. It is 12 x 12 inches and framed. It is a square artwork. According to Boston Artist, Nancy Simonds: “I make large-scale abstract gouache paintings on paper and panel. In each of my OVOID, BLOCK STACK, ARC SWEEP and CROPPED OVOID series I use different arrangements of shapes and colors to create a feeling of transcendent order. These images are anti-chaos. All strive for a connection to a moment for reflection resolution and calm. My works have luxuriant protean color and are infused with sublime soft texture. In painting each piece there is an experience of exhilaration and renewal. In each painting I stack and pile simple shapes, placing then sizing and creating visual relationships that build to larger rhythms. My best paintings work like Japanese haiku; each image is paired down to its essentials and each becomes a complete world of its own. In these paintings I aim for an effect deeper than the joy of beautiful surface and color; I want to generate visual places, points of departure for states of serenity and contemplation. In my OVOID series, I enjoy the play of organic shapes against the white of the background creating tension as the ovals touch or separate in varying degrees. These images reflect velvety textures such as moss as well as disparate edges, sizes and patterns coexisting in nature. Each shape is drawn and carved out by the edge of the brush. I use gouache paint on Reeves printmaking paper; I blot and dab myriad hues to create complex and delicate surfaces. It is the thrill of potential in each new piece that keeps me exploring in the studio.” Nancy Simonds, a graduate of the school of the Museum of Fine Arts and Smith College, has been exhibiting her work since 1978 in solo and group shows throughout the US. Her work is in public and private collections.
