JOAN NELSON (b. 1958)
Joan Nelson paints detailed intimate paintings of nature, landscape, and sky. Nostaglic and mystical, the paintings make a quiet reference to mythic narrative, not telling the story outright, but hinting at its passing. Her works are represented in public and private collections, including the Brooklyn Museum, New York; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, among others.
