“Spanning the past few years, this work represents a progression of sustained exploration. I rely on process rather than intent. Venture first; meaning may follow.
I believe there is value in an inner recursive approach to creation. How do I know what I mean until I reflect on what I’ve created?
2015 to 2018 has been a time of shifts in both my personal world and the outer world as I have experienced it. There is a story here. It chronicles the journey of creating and reflects my response to the currents of time, the changing political landscape, daily life, and the solace of nature.”
Of this exhibit Nate says, “For this project I wanted to explore what my paintings would look like in a more physical form, a space that could be navigated by a viewer using more senses than the eyes. What kind of materials would be used? How would the representation of space on a canvas translate into an environment? Why not use skills and tools used and acquired through other lines of work to create something different? With an assortment of materials from previous projects I set about creating the elements for a space that I call the Blues.”
