Nancy Bush Biography
Nancy Bush is a native Texan, born in Austin and currently resides in
Her pursuit of art has taken her to many beautiful places in the world to
study and paint a wide variety of subject matter. "Landscape is my love
and is always a challenge, spiritually and emotionally. The variety and
vastness of it can sometimes be overwhelming. Simplification is the
answer. "Less Is More". The last light of the day or daybreak interests
me more than other times of the day. I also love gray cloudy days.
Trying to capture the spirit and emotion of what is happening before my
eyes is the greatest challenge. "I want the viewer to feel the physicality
and emotional essence of the subject matter of the painting. "Her greatest
influence in her art has come from the nineteenth and twentieth century
painters George Inness, Isaak Levitan, Bruce Crane, and Russell Chatham.
"Nothing can imitate nature, but I hope my paintings will convey a single
quiet moment of the landscape in its raw beauty."
