Nadaleena Mirat Brettmann: Twister Series

In partnership with the artist, we are pleased to offer a slideshow of works from Nadaleena Mirat Brettmann‘s “Twister Series” at 303 Art Gallery, on view from October 1st to November 29th, 2013.  The press release explains:

“With her striking canvases of red hot twisters, she gives the fury of the funnel cloud a volatile, apocalyptic presence in the Romantic tradition of painters such as Turner. In the Twister series, Nadaleena turns a weather phenomenon into a visionary spectacle.  Nadaleena seizes the terrifying shape of a raging twister and intensifies its uncontrollable force with uninhibited brushstrokes and vibrant relentless hues transforming this spiraling vortex into an ecstatic celebrant or an apocalyptic landscape. Invoking both generative and destructive associations of blood, the painter instills the twister with a mythological dimension, while allowing the viewer to get swept up in their own emotional response.”
