“Hemi-Drift” explores the creative process and the fugitive nature of all things; be that a moment in a painting or the position of particles in the quantum universe. I marvel at energy finding ways to manifest as form: so varied, so oddly specific, so mysteriously beautiful and always evolving.

About the artist
About the artist

Nancy Boyd
Vancouver, BC

After first working as a designer and architectural renderer in Vancouver, Nancy taught drawing and painting at Capilano University for 23 years while maintaining an active studio practice. She has shown extensively in the Lower Mainland as well as in the US, Australia and Japan. Her work retains the influences of her early years, notably her fascination with mapping, viewpoints and conflations of scale.

“I think it’s important to continue to be in awe of the world, to always ‘see’ freshly. I look for beauty in less conventional places and enjoy the accidents of process to keep things exciting. My visual witnessing, probing and creative re-ordering may lead me to the interior of the body, the atmosphere of space, or a cell under a microscope; while always taking pleasure in the act of creating and being curious about what I see and what it might mean.”
