When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Nancy Loughlin

Nancy Loughlin's paintings usually combine two elements. The first element is the space, the scene of the action if you will, and that space is almost always the home, represented either as an interior scene or as a graphic skeletal framework. She then populates this ultimate symbol of domesticity with a menagerie of wildness. Animals and birds and plants overlap and merge and fade like a the tumbling chaotic images of a dream. It is as if these houses are haunted by everything they are not; wild, chaotic, alive.
There's plenty more to look through at her website:
