This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted December 2004, is from the artist.

"Nancy Azara has a signature vocabulary of materials (carved wood, paper), colors (red, black, silver, gold) and forms (human, tree and organic in-betweens), which she deployed in a variety of complex and simple sculptural formats in her recent exhibition Azara coats the raw material with pigment and/or metallic leaf so that its natural color and grain are concealed."  Janet Koplos; Art in America, New York City, January 2000.

Nancy Azara is a sculptor and book artist who has shown her work in New York City, throughout the U.S. and abroad.  Her spiritually infused sculpture is carved, assembled, and painted wood with gold and silver leaf and encaustic.

She has just completed a 6 1/2 foot x 28 foot sculpture, Hand Garden, Doctors Wall, a commission for the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Hamilton NJ.  Some of her recent works include Heart Wall, a 24-foot long expanse of 13 pieces, 6 feet high, and Passages, a carved wood accordion book of poems, 18 feet long and 1 foot high, a collaboration with poet Judith Barrington.

Azara has recently written a book, Spirit Taking Form: Making a Spiritual Practice of Making Art, published in December 2002 (Red Wheel/ Weisers) and an essay, "In Pursuit of the Divine" for The Kensington and Winchester Papers: Painting, Sculpture and the Spiritual Dimension, 2003 (Onerios Books).

She was a founder of the New York Feminist Art Institute (NYFAI) in 1979, where she was on the board and taught a workshop called "Consciousness Raising, Visual Diaries, Art Making" for many years.  She has been a visiting artist in the United States, Europe, and India, most recently at the Bogliasco Foundation, Genoa, Italy and at Chikraneketan in South India (state of Kerala).
