Exploring Nancy Previs' series "On the Road to Spiritual Perfection"

March 16, 2016

We are happy to present two new additions to our contemporary print collection, a series of solarplate relief prints by Dublin-based artist Nancy Previs. The multi-plate work On the Road to Spiritual Perfection expresses quiet spiritual ecstasy and the simplicity of wonder. Through measured color combination – tones of pink are used with either subtle grey or with strong green – Nancy Previs explores facets of this theme.

Artist printmaker Nancy Previs has for many years been observing and recording nature’s forms, textures and tones. She is fascinated by subtleties in light and color. She draws inspiration from nature’s ability to generate beauty from what seem spontaneous, random processes. Connecting with the processes  – the life force of the landscape around us – she creates multi-plate etchings using aluminum, copper and solar plates.
 
Her work has been exhibited in shows in Ireland, the UK and the US. She is a member of the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland. She is also a photographer, sound recordist, and arts writer. Among her qualifications, she holds undergraduate degrees from UMass, Amherst; The National College of Art and Design, Dublin; and a Masters degree from University College Dublin. Born and raised in Connecticut, she lives in Dublin, Ireland.
