About the Artist
I am a visual artist. I do oil paintings, as well as faux/decorative finishes. In my decorative painting business I specialize in: glazes; custom stencils; faux finishing; venetian plaster; gilding; custom color mixing.
The following is my artist statement for my paintings:
In Nicole Herz''s recent Maine paintings, her interest in the simplification and abstraction of form continues to manifest itself. These paintings explore the worlds she finds both inside and reflected in the windows of abandoned houses and barns. Once inhabited and full of life, these old houses and barns now exist on their own terms, still and sculpture-like. Herz''s abstraction of the structures celebrates the fundamental beauty of their form while evoking the lingering presence of past inhabitants.
