Nancy Manter

Painter and photographer Nancy Manter’s work is based on the elements of weather, the environment, and landscape. “My paintings juxtapose contrasting environments like the flat dawn of light on the water with the maelstrom of snow and sleet,” she says. “Rocks against the water and skyline, always shifting, are fiercely beautiful, with awkward and often humorous shapes. Recently, my work has shifted to explore urban environments and pockets of color suggestive of a kind of chemical, toxic activity-yellow and green smog and waterways in a Superfund site, for example. My work continues to reflect my deep sense of foreboding, anticipation, and curiosity in nature as it exists today.”
