Meet artist Nancy Willis whose paintings and prints of Paris celebrate the resilience of Paris and its people following the 2015 terrorist attacks.
Willis leads artists to Paris on her annual painting tours to France. Throughout the years, she has tuned in to the ebb and flow of street scenes, watching and recording the light and life of café culture. But after the terrorist attacks in 2015, she felt achingly distant from the familiar rituals of Parisian life. This series of paintings and prints is Willis’ way of reconnecting and honoring this beloved city.
Artist Name: Nancy Willis
About Artist: Artist Nancy Willis lives and works in the Napa Valley. As a painter/ printmaker she works with themes of intimacy and social connection by creating series such as The BED, RSVP, the CHANDELIER and TERRAIN. With paint or printing ink, Willis uses an additive and subtractive process to explore how color, light and atmosphere can instill meaning and evoke a sense of place. Her work was recently exhibited at the StARTup Art Fairs in LA, Chicago and San Francisco and the With Liberty and Justice for Some exhibit in Berkeley.
