NAN XU DREAMSCAPE
I am interested in painting the landscape of both city view and nature view. I like to combine the sincere and vivid natural status of beings such as rocks and clouds with the discovery about the relationship between the seen world and the world inside myself. I like to use mix media of oil and pen and acrylic to create a language to describe the texture and space and light effect of materials to transfer both rational and romantic feeling of nature. The old masters of Hudson River school paintings give me influence on the light effect of landscape and the way they push the paintings into an ideal romantic world. My recent project is talking about the communication of the unknown energy between nature and human through the event of nature or civilization transformation in a magic-realistic world.
Nan Xu was born in China. From a young age she developed a strong passion in both science and art. After she graduated from NYU with a master degree of Science she decided to be a professional artist. During the study in New York Academy of Art she started to paint imaginary landscape of both city view and nature view. After Graduation, she continues to work in New York.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
