About Nancy Belle

It's often the art works that make us uncomfortable that demand we look at them...and we do.
It's my thought that the 'new art' of today is moving closer to 'street art' and that abstract art is expanding. Not to say that we'll ever give up taking pleasure in viewing a beautiful portrait or landscape scene...but right now there's an 'edge' being expressed in our social and political genres that's being felt by all...perhaps particularly by artists. That unrest (even if only hidden in the back of our minds) is hitting artists of all kinds and that the trend will continue until a major shift in consciousness has run it's course. New works of art will be about letting go of compromise to sometimes become a shockingly honest expression.
But I also believe there is LIGHT at the end of this tunnel.
This time is expanding in all of us artists (and everyone as we are all creators) our right to demand acceptance and to feel and BE the love we are.
