Show ran from 1/8/2014 to 2/1/2014
In her show, Hatched, Nancy Fritz creates a visual tribute to her mother who turned 90 this year. Introducing small intimate portraits of the women in her family, Nancy draws on her history as a figurative and narrative painter. In this show she has expanded her work to include elements of installation as well, centered around the idea of eggs as metaphor for various aspects of her mother’s life, the daily tasks of which, as a farmer’s wife, included caring for all the creatures on the farm, children and animals alike. Spanning a visual realm, from classical painting techniques to sculptural symbols, the show creates a lively and deeply personal peek at one woman’s life.
