New works on paper by Nona Hershey

March 1st, 2016

Nona Hershey continues to explore cloud imagery.  Her newest drawings juxtapose the ephemeral nature of clouds with flat color in highly formal patterns.  Bending and weaving grids of bright color act in opposition to the soft gray atmospheric tones and bring to mind abstracted farmed fields.  Nona’s choice of spectral colors suggest the phenomenon of rainbows. Weather patterns and wave lengths have appeared in earlier works and linger within these new drawings to evoke land and sky in a fresh and surprising way.
