Canadian artist Natalie Reis describes her ‘NAV·I·GA·TION’ series of paintings and prints as ‘anti – neocromantic seascapes’. I’m not quite sure what she means by that – does it mean that her seascapes are minimal in colour? Follow a specific set of rules? Are a conscious effort to negate colour, turn against it? I don’t know. What I do know is that I’d love to see an exhibition of her work - it’s clash of geometry and chaos, the tension between colour and form – the wonderful energetic marks that are made on the canvas.
I’ve included some of her old paintings to give you more of an idea of how her new work (images at the top) is different from her old.
