Ann Marie Nafziger: Field Notes
Curated by Dr. Natalie Maria Roncone
"My work is influenced by direct experiences with the natural environment and especially concerned with temporality, instability, mutation and change. Field Notes is a record of some of my observations and reflections over the past two years."
Marfa Contemporary are thrilled to be able to share a selection of Ann Marie Nafziger’s new works which are directly influenced by her experiences within the landscape. The paintings characterize Nafziger’s engagement with temporality, instability and entropy. In this new series, Nafziger has condensed the rich and tactile painterly qualities of her earlier canvases into ever-evolving organic forms of prismatic colors set against variously toned whites, connoting at once surface and space. Nafziger’s characteristic marks of revision—scraping, visible underpainting, pigment feathering, and glazing—often remain, but often in much more stripped-down, crisply toned formats, such as the new linen pieces which display a graphic linearity while shaping an elusive figuration.
