Palm Springs Art Museum: Impressionism to Abstract Expressionism

“Vesper” by Nicole Chesney 2007.  Inspired by the light of a desert landscape at dusk, her piece is a mesmerizing yet technical work combining glass, oil paint and aluminum.  From the description, Chesney “superimposes sheer layers of color and after an intense and often arduous process of applying and removing layers of paint, the artist examines each finished layer and how it reacts to light.  Through this process a quality materializes that communicates a sense of wonder similar to that felt when witnessing the natural phenomena itself.”
