Nava Lundy

About The Artist 

Nava’s romantic and heavily textured impressionist paintings radiate delicate, feminine charm. She focuses on creating depth and dimension with the layers of impasto she applies with a palette knife and brush. This textural element blurs and abstracts the composition, conveying a notion of gentle, bleary-eyed beauty. Nava preps each canvas with a gold wash to make her paintings glimmer with luscious warmth. She works from her home in Florida, amid the chaos of children and canines, and finds peace painting in silence.

Artist Statement 

Nava blurs the lines between abstraction and impressionism combining soft edges with energetic palette knife work. Using her unique painting technique, she builds dimension and texture that make not only her subject come alive but make the viewer want to touch the painting's surface. With hints of gold in almost all of her work, her paintings have been described as luminous and dreamlike. "My goal is to have the viewer see the depth of color I see and to rethink the mundane by elevating it through the exploration of subtlety and turning up its volume at just the right points. I view my subject matter as a puzzle with each stroke building my paintings."
