Nancy Newman Rice

Euclidian geometry as the skeleton of the empirical experience is nothing new, Poussin and Cezanne both seized upon this method of pictorial organization through subtle designs and simplified spatial effects. My Reflection series were compilations of geometric patterns that the winter sun produced as it was filtered through horizontal blinds on a blank wall, thus defining spatial limits. Defining space with a geometric skeleton produced rectangular grid work of scaffolding which then described the interior architecture of sacred spaces in cathedrals, churches, and mosques. As I worked, the buildings eventually disappeared as if erased by time, leaving geometry as a sacred artifact. - Artist Statement
