Cerulean Arts is pleased to present "Blurring the Line," featuring paintings that straddle the line between representation and abstraction. Join Nina Yocom, Ruslan Khais, Howard Neifeld and Nancy Sophy for an Artists' Talk and Reception on Saturday, September 9, 2-5 PM. Nina Yocom allows the flow of alcohol ink to organically form the structure of her paintings, suggesting botanical and landscape subjects. She seeks to express gratitude, hope, healing and self-acceptance in her work. The exhibition runs from September 1-24, 2023.

Artist ( Description ): 

I am a self-taught artist, born and raised in suburban Philadelphia. My earliest exposure to fine art was when my mother volunteered in our public elementary schools with a program called "Art Goes to School." This innovative program exposed me to a variety of artists and their work, along with an understanding of the color wheel and how colors work together. My father, an award-winning photographer and chemist, also influenced my own lens. This background, along with a liberal arts education, cultivated an appreciation for how art is a conduit of connection. As an emerging artist in my early 50s, I feel that I am making a radical re-discovery of self, enhanced by the act of creating.

In my work I allow the flow of alcohol ink to organically form the structure of my piece. Using a palette of different colors enables me to set the intention of where the piece will evolve. On occasion, I layer acrylic over the alcohol ink once it has dried. This method gives my piece added dimension, and is also an incredibly soothing process. I also enjoy using fine liner pens to detail over the alcohol ink images. Usually the artwork can stand alone if I am satisfied with the layout. Either way, I enjoy this medium for its ability to express gratitude, hope, healing and self-acceptance.
