Nancy Wolitzer


I create intricate drawings and paintings on paper, scratchboard, clayboard, and glass—comprised of many small and personal markings. While the intimate details and density of the markings can draw the eye to a particular corner or segment of the piece, I try to create a larger world that the viewer can briefly enter.  The sense of place, that you are somewhere else, is essential to my work. I sometimes incorporate gold leaf in order to add another dimension and level of delicacy.

I am drawn to nature—trees, caves, waterfalls. Over the years my work has transitioned from abstract to more representational aspects of nature.

My greater aim is to explore the connection between intimacy and openness, and the spaces in between.

  4. Nancy your scratchboard birds are beautiful. I feel I may be stuck in a rut with my bird renderings, perhaps I should try scratchboard….. but have no idea!
