The Paintings of Nan Hass Feldman
“For me, art is really about enhancing and interpreting reality to create a more positive and joyous world.” Nan Hass Feldman
Nan Hass Feldman’s art embodies her statement. The delightful images in Travel in Time/Mexico 250Ad to 2019 AD on exhibit at North Hill are nothing less than joyous.
In the winter of 2018, Feldman visited the Rufino Tamayo Museum in Oaxaca, Mexico. There, she was able to view a collection of 3,000-year-old Pre-Columbian figures. “The humanity and humor in these small clay figures was my inspiration.” she says. She photographed them, sketched them and then finally brought them to life in her singular style. Since titles are important to her, she researched Mayan names and created a moniker for each one.
Nan Hass Feldman is an award-winning artist and instructor whose work spans 40 years and several continents. Her work can be found in museums and private collections around the world.
The exhibition is augmented by a small collection of authentic Pre-Columbian sculptures from the collection of Helen Meyrowitz. It runs from October through December 2019.
The Art Gallery at North Hill is open to the public from 9am-6pm, Monday to Saturday.
