About the Artwork
I am inspired by how light brings richness and vitality to color. I feel most alive when I explore my subjects with palette knife discovering nuance of color and texture and it is my goal that the viewer feels that same passion when they see my work. I want that energy to translate to the viewer making them rediscover a subject or color they may have otherwise overlooked. Painting is the only time I find absolute calm, I try to capture a "quiet" in my paintings that often escapes my life outside of my art.

"Nava Lundy works in the present but draws heavily on the past in terms of her approach to painting. The results are rich with classical and modern influence. Hints of cubism and Picasso’s blue period percolate to the surface of Nava’s pictures, yet the lasting impression on the viewer is one of unique originality. Recently earning her Bachelor of Arts Degree at the University of Pennsylvania and her certification by the Pennsylvania Academy Of Fine Arts, this young painter is one to take note of now." -Edward Montgomery Fine Art
