SMALL GLIMPSES, MANY TIMES
August 28 – October 15, 2020
The Art Base is proud to present Small Glimpses, Many Times, “an experiment in self-awareness.” Nancy Lovendahl spent three years preparing for and ruminating on this show in which a mountain is depicted, many times. A question asked by Lovendahl: what does it mean to be limited to one singular, non-threatening, representation of a mountain? A repetition that sheds light on a commentary between the cyclical nature of our biases and thought processes; a metaphor for conflict between perception and reality. Like a common teaching from the fundamentals of drawing: draw what you see, not what you know.
The work showcases a breadth of materials including Tyvec, crushed tracing paper, cast epoxy resin, and digital photographs. Her pieces are installed on Colorado sky blue and light grey walls. Lovendahl’s use of many materials further pushes the viewer to experience the shape of the mountain, many times and in many ways.
Nancy Lovendahl was born and raised in the Chicago area. Following studies at The University of Illinois – Champaign/Urbana in ceramics, Lovendahl expanded to making work for both inside and outside environments in ceramic, stone, metal and mixed media. Her artwork can be found in private & public collections and museums such as The Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, The Keramikmuseum, in Westerwald, Germany and The National Gallery in Tbilisi, Georgia. Lovendahl teaches and lectures in institutions such as The Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing, China, Anderson Ranch Art Center and Nebraska Wesleyan University. She exhibits internationally and nationally, with her most recent shows at The Colorado Springs Fine Art Center and Michael Warren Contemporary in Denver. Nancy lives in Old Snowmass, CO with husband, jewelry designer Scott Keating, their dog and cat. She works in studios in Old Snowmass and Denver, CO.
