Fragments of the Aquatic

Nancy McTague-Stock

September 25 through November 4, 2011


Primary Cadence, Mixed media on canvas
"Fragments of the Aquatic," showcases works by Silvermine Guild Artist, Nancy McTague-Stock, a resident of Wilton, CT. Ms. McTague-Stock is an artist who works in a variety of media. She shares her interest in creating imagery that offers a glimpse of unnoticed rhythms of the natural world, with deep-rooted connections in ecology, psychology and sociology through drawings, paintings, printmaking, new media and writing. In its many forms, water plays a vital role for all of us. Water offers us properties of sustenance, potential for destruction, meditative moments, athletic opportunities and artistic vision. Her preoccupation with natural water occurrences in daily life is evident in this series of work. "By focusing on fragments available to me in a singular moment, I invite the audience to share in a multi-sensorial exhibition. I hope they will engage, reflect and contemplate how water plays critical and numerous roles in their lives," says McTague-Stock. "The works of art in this exhibition offer the viewer an opportunity to play with their own perception of reality."
