This painter grew up in rural western Ohio, lived for a time in Portland, Oregon and built a home in Marfa, Texas. Her lush canvasses have always relied on an organic cohesion, linking her work with artists like Joan Mitchell and Jean Arp. In a period of reflection and experimentation with monoprints Nafziger concentrated her imagery on botanical chaos, and in a radical departure from her earlier work the artist has embraced stencils, airbrush paint and wall installation. One of the most intelligent artists working today in Houston, Nafziger brings a tenderness to her exacting intentions, balancing priorities between emotional and intellectual prowess.
