May 6-29, 2022 LARGE WORKS
Working in oil Ninalee contributes 11 paintings to this July 2019 exhibit. Her landscapes often employ a rhythmic staccato brush stroke expressing the transient feeling of nature. Clearly skilled with the human figure she can also capture a portrait in a very painterly style. And her lively still lifes possess a unique visual perspective, traditional yet spirited.
“I am drawn to the playful patterns and repetition found in nearly every outdoor scene or natural object. Simple shapes built up with layers of paint are used to create calm impressions of an environment. References relate to positive emotional experiences and the purpose of representing them in paint is to share these sentiments with the audience to give them a sense of escape and contentment.”
Ninalee has graciously donated the painting “Warm Sky over Hilltop” from this exhibit “Best Bainbridge Sites” to the Bainbridge Island Land Trust for their 2019 annual fundraising event.
