Meet this week’s featured artist, Aina Nergaard-Nammack, recently rejoined (welcome back Aina!):
MY ART: For each force there is a reciprocal force. I have to work actively in the field to abstract my comprehension of what I feel, and imagine forms and colors that will be in equilibrium on the canvas. My paintings are non-representational. The important thing for me is to arrange these forms in the pictorial field to achieve a strong composition. I balance all relationships as they develop and intuitively search for a complete image. My non-representational forms will flow as part of a rhythmical interplay. The result is a vibrant, balanced composition. My art is doing.
For my “Fragments of classical music and meditation series”: While I listen to music, I start painting large brush strokes in accordance of what I am listening to. I get immersed in the music and my brush hits the canvas in different directions and tempo. At times I have two or three brushes in my hand, different sizes and different colors, and I use them as the music tells me to. I am not thinking of what I do, but anytime a brush stroke appears on the canvas, I move away to really look at the composition and decide what direction I will take next. I pause many times, to avoid a chaos that could start if I am not careful. When I am painting, I use my whole arm and my body and paint somehow away from the canvas so that I can continually see from a distance, what I am doing.

MFA and ME: I was a member of MFA a few years ago and I had to leave because I live far away. This year I decided to come back. MFA gives the artists many opportunities to apply for juried shows, and this is very important to me. I want to be part of a gallery that has very good artists in a diversity of styles.
