Nancy Schall was born in Pennsylvania and received a degree in art from Pennsylvania State University . After a successful career in Europe in the fashion industry, she returned to New York City. Nancy resumed painting and mixed media art and is now a commissioned artist for private clients, hospitality, and corporations,The large scale paintings are conceptual, abstract and textural in nature. Her mixed media is graphic, architectural colorblocks.
The paintings are informed by my passion for dance music.
The beats and rhythms inspire and drive the formation of shapes and suggest fluidity as the work progresses. Some genres of dance music create color blocks of strong vibrant shapes and linear configurations that imply dance movement. Other rhythms increase the layering of paint. The music drives the textural application of the palette knife or brush in a visceral plane. There are many influences that I draw from, and each piece develops a choreography of its own.
