Pigment Alchemy by Nancy Wood

From October, 19 to November, 12 2016


Venue: Store Street Gallery

Store Street Gallery is proud to present the much awaited solo show by Nancy Wood 'Pigment Alchemy' Exhibition 19 October - 12 November. Private View 20 Oct 6-8 pm. Most of my adult life has been spent experimenting with pigment behaviour. I originally worked with watercolour, a medium in which pigment characteristics are most apparent. But it was the fluid work of Paul Jenkins and more recently Holten Rowers that inspired me to try something new and to explore fluid acrylics as a vehicle to create pigment effects.

Having long known that pigments have different characteristics, I use the viscosity of fluid acrylics to harness their power to attract or repel each other as they vie for position in a flowing journey of evolving patterns. The explosive energy of hot pinks and reds and the slowly developing nature of blues and greens are brought alive in carefully mixed recipes of acrylics and ink.

The resulting micro images seem directly related to patterns found throughout the natural world, rather microscopic or celestial. In forming the works for this collection, I select compositions from the micro images to produce large-scale fine art prints on high quality cotton rag paper using pigment inks. All works on display at the exhibition will be mixed media original work on panel, canvas or silk.
