Nicole Strasburg seeks to capture the emotion of the landscape in paintings that reflect rather than reproduce nature. Working from sketches and photographs taken in the field, she builds her images with successive layers of painting, wiping, sanding and scraping. The technique engenders depth and movement that enable her, as she puts it, "to convey the immensely powerful, yet quietly mysterious elements" of her surroundings.
