ART GALLERY OF PETERBOROUGH About Face 2007
Thru the medium of oil on canvas, I paint in the realism style of the Renaissance Masters. In observation of our natural environment, I seek to discover an anthropomorphic relationship. An eclectic array of subject matter is used; my attraction being the intensities of colour and its duplication process. The subject selected is then placed in the tense confinement of canvas parameters in reflection and note of habitat loss. My current focus are winged ones.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
A native of Hamilton, Ontario, Nancy R. Chalut after completing a Bachelor of Arts in History at the University of Guelph was soon to find that working with her hands was her true identity.
Nancy's career with a pencil began on a shop floor as an apprenticing cabinetmaker where sketching, drawing and working out fine detail was a basic requirement for a fine piece of furniture. Once trade certified, she enhanced her skills in the Architectural Technology Department of Mohawk College, where she taught Industrial Woodworking and design.
Pencil skills where enhanced upon meeting Pauline Bradshaw under whom Nancy trained for four years obtaining a solid knowledge of academic drawing of representation and realism in the style of the Renaissance Masters.
Venturing further, Nancy enrolled in the Art School of Peterborough where she was offered the Richard Haymen Scholarship. This was later enhanced as apprentice under the sharp eye and guidance of realist painter Anne-Marie Kornachuk, where she acquired a solid grounding in the colours of oils and painting methodologies. Various workshops where attended with Doug Purdon and Dwayne Hardy.
In 2010, Nancy attained a Canadian ranking inviting her to attend the Commonwealth Trials in Archery.
Nancy was invited as a member of the Ontario Society of Artists in 2015.
Currently, Nancy resides in Port Perry Ontario offering her woodworking skills to Ko Pel's Fine Furniture Restorations under the attentive guidance of her cat and dog.
