NICOLE PHUNGRASAMEE FEIN
Nicole Phungrasamee Fein makes exquisite watercolor paintings on paper. Beginning with only four pencil points that mark a square, and without the aid of a straight edge, Fein lays down strokes of color in precisely timed applications.
Multiple layers result in paintings of complex, luminous color in a process more akin to weaving than traditional watercolor painting. Each work requires total concentration and must be completed in a single sitting. Such an intense and painstaking process produces work of astonishing tranquility.
