Artist Information for Nelda Warkentin
For many years, the environment of western Maine has strongly influenced my work. Old, tall trees swaying in the wind fascinate. The woods offer indelible imagery. My work has evolved from being representational to more abstract. However, rhythm and pattern continue to be a consistent theme.
Working in sections is another ongoing element. The straight lines created where the sections join represent the architectural line—man’s impact on Nature. Juxtaposing Nature’s sinuous, curving imagery with that which is rigid and firm is my ‘signature’ style.Images scroll down to view all
