Otherlands 5-D remarks on landscape traditions through the personal narrative of the artist, Nina Bednarski. Her work pays homage to nature and the limitless realities envisioned within it. Her use of color and methodical painting techniques join to create the bright and enchanted environments in Otherlands 5-D. Striving to reach a meditative state while painting, Bednarski created this new body of work to inspire the mind and heart.
The paintings in Otherlands 5-D are made primarily with enamel on glass and acrylic on canvas. A methodical, slow-painting approach achieves a smooth, blemish-free surface reminiscent of mechanical print processes. Experiments in mixed media sculpture accent and combine with the paintings to achieve poetic foregrounds that the landscape paintings enrich.
Nina Bednarski is a multi-media artist working and living in Milwaukee, WI. After graduating with a BA from the University of Wisconsin in Madsion, she began a fifteen year career of group, solo, university and museum shows across Wisconsin, Chicago, and New York City (where she maintained a Brooklyn studio for many years.) More recently, Nina has taken on several large curatorial projects in raw spaces, storefronts and experimental galleries in Milwaukee. To learn more, visit www.ninabednarski.com
