Artist Profile

Nancy Graves (1939-1995) developed her personal aesthetic in Abstract Expressionism while attending the Yale University School of Art.  She continuously infused her work with new and innovative ideas by transposing concepts from one medium to another.  In the 1970s, visual representations of natural phenomena, like the weather and moon maps made by NASA, inspired her paintings, drawings, and prints. She later made outlines from these pieces to create three-dimensional colorful abstract public sculptures in the 1980s.  The artist’s works are in the collections of prominent museums such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art; the Brooklyn Museum of Art; the Corcoran Gallery of Art; Ludwig Forum for International Art, Germany; and Marimura Art Museum, Japan.
