At a time when concept and multimedia seem to be omnipresent in the contemporary scene, Nancy's paintings are gemlike exceptions. At a time when ink art seems to be wandering off the realm of painting to take on all sorts of new forms, Nancy's paintings are especially approachable. Her paintings are a pleasure to look at. Just as inviting as the interplays of colours and Chinese ink, the beautiful forms, whether figures, still-lifes or landscapes, celebrate life itself and manifest the artist's sunny, unrestrained and ambitious character. The Nancy that can be seen through the paintings is true and free of affectations. The colours and forms in her paintings are lodged with the artist's passion for life. If honesty is what makes art so precious, so touching and so beautiful, this is exactly what makes Nancy's recent paintings so inviting.
