“Thinking of You”

A Series of Cold Wax Oil Paintings by Rina Naik

Museum Gallery Hours: Tues – Sat from 10am-5pm

 

“Thinking of You” is a series of abstract landscape paintings that are rooted in the artist’s memories of the New England landscape. This series is based on memories and the fleeting moments that anchor our experiences and life.

 

Rina Naik

New England based artist, Rina Naik, has been painting its beautiful landscapes for a few years. She loves the coastline, its unique light quality, and its seasons. Her work is informed by her “en plein air” practice, which she uses to get to know a place –  its color, light, texture, topography, smell, and atmosphere. She describes this as a process of falling in love with the place. She also relies on her memories to further abstract and enhance the sensorial expressions in her work. She primarily works in oil and cold wax medium, which allows for the development of a range of textures and finishes in her work. Her work has been featured in numerous group, juried exhibits, and an invitational. She was awarded the Best Emerging Artist (2018) at the Art Providence Holiday Show. She also won a Merit award at the AAM’s Members’ Show in 2017. She won an Award of Distinction at the 2016 National Juried Show at Imago Gallery. She teaches at RISD and Endicott College along with workshops at Attleboro Arts Museum and Pawtucket Arts Collaborative.

 

Rina will be teaching a 1-day workshop at the Attleboro Arts Museum this winter called “Introduction to Cold Wax” on Sunday, February 9th from 1-4pm for adults & teens 17+.
