Nancy Bush works in layers of paint, letting each layer dry between applications. This build-up of layers and glazes increases the light and luminosity of the painting, thus suggesting mood and moments of fleeting atmospheric dialogue
“I strive for my paintings to have a universal appeal and not just a particular region. I feel it is about human emotions in time and space represented by light, darkness, warmth, cool, wet, dry, etc. These elements should evoke a very human response of how one feels upon viewing my work. If they connect that way, then I feel my work is validated.”
“My paintings are a visual language with a message brought to life on canvas using my own personal emotions and experiences. Hopefully, they convey more than just technical expertise, it must contain a part of my soul, spirit and personal reflection of my intention.”
Bush’s work has been featured in numerous art publications, including Art of the West, Southwest Art, Cowboys and Indians, American Art Collector, American Artist, and Western Art Collector.
Bush has participated in the Night of Artists Exhibition and Sale and other invitational shows across the county, including the National Cowboy & Heritage Museum’s Small Works, Great Wonders show in Oklahoma City, American Art Invitational Small Gems show in Denver, and Quest for the West at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art in Indianapolis.
Nancy Bush is represented by InSight Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas, and several other galleries around the country.
