Paintings By Nancy Balmert
Called “The Queen of the Flowers” Nancy Balmert is known world over for her large scale floral paintings. Her works perfectly capture the bloom, translating its ravishing details in a way that makes the viewer feel as if they were strolling through the garden, inhaling the scent of the flowers and the warmth of the sunlight beaming down upon them
Painstakingly following the style of the Old Masters, such as Rembrandt and Caravaggio, Nancy employs the technique of lighting for effect. In her works, she creates what she calls “soft edges” and uses the intensity of the pigment to cause the subjects of her paintings to advance and recede. She combines the very best pigments available with a medium to produce works that will last literally for centuries.
