Nancy Voegeli-Curran’s artistic practice focuses on the duality between chance and intention. Her abstract drawings and paintings explore process and the materiality of paint. Through interweaving, multi-layered structures, she creates micro and macrocosms that resemble a phenomenological event such as a cosmological dust storm with inter-stellar bits or a spatial galaxy. Shimmering, mineral-like colors add subtle nuance to her work. Her studio practice has been influenced by living in the northwest for several years and by subsequent travels to Alaska and the northwest where dynamic natural forces combined with an overall sense of vastness are evident.
Voegeli-Curran’s work is included in the current Art in Embassies program Encountering Place in Wellington, New Zealand. She has also exhibited nationally and in west coast galleries. Her work has been collected by California State University, Long Beach and in private homes. Voegeli-Curran earned an MFA degree in drawing and painting at California State University, Long Beach in 2011. She currently enjoys teaching art privately and previously taught art at CSULB. Scenic Angels Gate Cultural Center in San Pedro is the site of her new studio.
