I have been painting for more than 40 years in two very different styles.
In my watercolors, I am less interested in recording what’s “out there” than in expressing both my emotional involvement with what I borrow from the visual world, and my excitement with the painting process. Watercolor’s fluidity and crispness make it a lively, dynamic medium perfectly suited to my temperament.
In my monotypes, I strive to invent a self-contained world in which colors, shapes, textures, and movement exist in their own right, with no conscious reference to anything outside. I walk the fine line between fostering spontaneity in the design while remaining mindful of aesthetic demands. Inventing an original visual world is analagous to the composer’s creation of a new sound world.
From his home base in upstate New York, Anthony Nazzaro paints landscape and floral watercolors and also creates monotypes.
His landscape watercolors are inspired by sketches done during travels to France, particularly Brittany, the French Alps, and the Cote d'Azur. Local scenes from the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains are also well represented.
