Art, to me, is primarily about the process. It’s my reaction both to the world and to the marks I am making on the canvas. The finished product becomes a record of my process. I may find inspiration in a figure, a landscape, music, or the bits of images and thought that swirl in my head. Regardless of how I begin, the work evolves beyond my initial plan. The act of painting is improvisational. As I work, each new move comes as a reaction to the one before. I can't tell you exactly what I'll do next until I've finished the current stroke. Although I consider artistic elements and principles as I work, the act of painting is often spontaneous and unstructured. It’s a conversation, where I enjoy the twists and turns of the interaction rather than worrying about where I'll end. What is left, the final painting, is a chronicle of my process, of that conversation between my intuition and the materials.
Nancy Ramsey, a painter from Alexandria, Virginia, values exploring the natural world and often references nature and the human form within her abstract art. She also enjoys painting more abstractly on intuitive projects in which each stroke forms in response to the one before .Collaborating with other artists, writers and dancers is a particular interest and inspiration.
