Rocky Neck Gallery is pleased to announce the second show of the Summer Artist Series introducing the artist Nella Lush and her exquisitely beautiful seascapes and frescoes. The show, titled Nella’s Journey, opens Wednesday, June 12 until July 2. An artist reception will be held on Sunday, June 16th from 4-6 PM. The public is invited to attend this free event and hear Nella talk about her work and process.
An experimental artist, Nella enjoys working on a variety of subject matter from abstracts to florals, landscape to seascapes. The Cape Ann coastline is her muse where she spends time recording the atmospheric moods of the water, light and sky. Back in her studio she interprets these emotions on canvas where the process of painting is, for her, a spiritual journey. She works mainly with oils using cold wax as a medium often adding marble dust to create more texture and depth. It is her application and scraping of numerous layers, again and again, that shape the final painting.
“I connect with things that leave a mystery… that the viewer is digging into the painting and each time they find something different. I don’t seek perfection: I just seek to be heard and to have the viewer connect emotionally to my work and to bring them to a time and place in their life.”
Nella is represented by the Art Essex Gallery, Essex, CT; the Mystic Seaport Maritime Gallery, Mystic, CT; Lorica Gallery, and Peter Alpers Art, both of Andover, MA. She is a Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists; a member of National Associations of Women Artists in NYC; Rockport Art Association, Rockport, MA; a member and board trustee of North Shore Art Association, Gloucester, MA; President of the Andovers Artists Guild; and associate member of the Oil Painters of America.
