Nancy Shaver

fastness, slowness and Monstrous Beauty

Derek Eller Gallery, NY, NY

March 13 – April 12, 2020

In front of, in back of, to the side and around and through. These are the facts of being "someplace." Context defines. Can context shift sideways as well as up and down? In my 50 years of art making, this has been my primary concern. Context need not be narrowing. There are a billion threads. Billions of objects, billions of thoughts, I am a part of it all. 


I will be showing new work, made over the last year. Work based on the many years of being an artist, knowledge gained bit by bit. 


I am joined by fellow artists Max Goldfarb and Sterrett Smith. We have created a unit we are totally committed to exploring. Wolf Tones. This is the second version of Wolf Tones. WOLF TONES II. The first iteration happened last spring at Soloway Gallery in Brooklyn. The third part will happen at Oakville Galleries in Toronto, Canada, in the fall of 2021. There will be a small book published by Sobercove Press in the spring of 2021. 


This is my third solo show at Derek Eller Gallery.
