Preston’s Modern Manuscripts

Nancy Preston of NY sent the polymer clay piece at the left to Synergy for the auction and I finally had a chance to see her work up close.

In her art the medieval manuscript meets contemporary media and a traditional aesthetic meets modern visual vocabulary.

Her most recent work (pictured at the right) has even richer colors and more layers of meaning. It’s visually dense and delicious.

      I’m a mural painter, calligrapher, illustrator (etc.), dabbling in polymer and intrigued by the idea of collage. I am ENCHANTED and inspired by your work…WOW!!!

        Nancy’s lecture was AMAZING!!

        Her pieces are exquisite- even more so after listening to her discuss the evolution of her personal symbology through the body of her work.
