Nancy Taplin: Painter

ART ON VIEW

Nancy Taplin: Painter
at BigTown Gallery in Rochester
December 13, 2017-March 31, 2018

A resident of Warren, Nancy Taplin’s large-scale paintings on canvas are known for their dancing swirls of bright color. Taplin said of her painting, “I think of my paintings as a drama on stage, the first big strokes are the start of a loose plot that tightens as it moves along. The lines, shapes, and colors whisper, shout, shove, lean, kick, leap and slide as though they might be in an opera. I have no fear of making changes. At a certain point, the painting takes on a life of its own. I want it to look like it just happened, a flash of magic and like magic it will show me when it’s finished.
