Nancy Simonds

Nancy Simonds Studio

"I love beautiful colors and color relationships above all. Clarity and resolved composition are important to me, too. It is the thrill of potential in each new piece that keeps me exploring in the studio."

Nancy Simonds creates abstract gouache paintings on paper. In each piece, different arrangements of colored blocks, ovals, and arcs create a feeling of ordered transcendence. These images are anti-chaos, infused with luxuriant color and sublime, soft texture.

Simonds uses gouache paint on Rives BFK printmaking paper. She applies the paint with a sable brush, achieving beautiful translucency and depth of color. The painting grows with a build up of shapes and complex color relationships. She uses a special blotting technique, dabbing the myriad hues to create delicate, textured surfaces.

Nancy Simonds attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston after receiving a BA from Smith College. She has had 25 years of studio practice in her studio in Boston. She works with several galleries as well as corporate art consultants and decorators; her work is represented in more than 50 corporate collections. She has had multiple solo shows at Graficas Gallery, Nantucket.
