Biography Nancy Shaver
The artist Nancy Shaver is as much a matchmaker as a sculptor, collecting items for her assemblages and then setting them up together in happy little homes. Based in Hudson, New York, where she runs a curiosity shop by the name of Henry, Shaver brings a similarly idiosyncratic eye to sculptures, pairing found objects—a stack of egg crates, for instance, or a cluster of wooden boxes—that she sometimes leaves unaltered, sometimes slathers with a brightly colored coat of house paint.
Often grouped with such artist contemporaries as Richard Tuttle and Tony Fehrer, and sharing the serendipitous aesthetic DNA of Louise Nevelson, Shaver also claims a less apparent influence: the photographer Walker Evans, who was her teacher and friend. Displaying 750 of 1134 characters.
