Svetlana Nelson

Pandemic, The Light Therein

(June 2020)

I have opted to focus on the personal, the quietly perceptive and philosophical. Reminiscent more of Forrest Bess than Henri Rousseau, my artistry most certainly falls within the visionary tradition. I work in a figurative mode, which gives my compositions a readily understandable subject-matter. Yet this simplicity is offset by preference for utilizing oil on canvas.
