Hyper-realistic Paintings, Nancy Depew

I do not know what the finished painting will look like when I begin. I start with a gesture. It is a visual idea, an intuitive idea, not a verbal or rational one. I am not interested in documenting reality. I make three-dimensionally believable images, but I never think of them as “real.” I am more inter- ested in investigating the intuitive aspect of a subject. I dig into the nature of experience.
