Editor’s Note: We met Erica Nazzaro at an art exhibition this fall. Her mixed media watercolor paintings of scenes in the forest and by the water instantly grabbed us because of the way the colors popped and played with each other. We needed to see more.
If you’d like to see more, Erica has two exhibits opening this week and two more next month:
November 6th-29th in the “Abstracted” exhibition at Uforge Gallery, 767 Centre St. in Jamaica Plain, MA with an opening night reception at 6pm November 6th.
In her own words: “My process is to go into a meditative space as I create. I try to be a vessel of connection from my environment to the paper integrating myself by weaving in my own feelings as I am painting.”
“When I feel fully immersed by the energy of the place I am painting…it clicks. I feel that I grasp the challenge, by being spontaneous, and curious, I use the accidents as opportunities. I take risks while exploring and creating.”
“My work is capturing a moment in time that is expressed through colors, lines, and textures. I strive to express the feeling more than the realistic image of what I see.”
Erica Nazzaro is a painter based out of Boston. She deals with complex landscapes by using simple strokes and unique color choices. Erica combines watercolor, pastel, and ink line work to create mixed media pieces. She has won an artist’s residency in the Dunes of Provincetown, and shown her work in the South End, Jamaica Plain, Dorchester, and in Venice, Italy.
