20 YEARS TODAY features 20 encaustic paintings created over the period of two years in anticipation of the 20-year anniversary of my move to Canada. Each painting has been created after an extensive exercise in remembrance, journaling and experimentation of form and technique. The body of work attempts to capture the many emotions associated with the continuous process of migration. Using abstraction, colour and texture to represent embodied emotions related to anticipation, adaptation, grief, struggle, commitment, realization, joy, fulfilment and nostalgia enabled me to externalize fragments from two decades of my life which have seen not only an ongoing process of migration, but also a process of growth.
Each of the 20 paintings represent a year in this process and evokes feelings and emotions associated with that particular time. Some are completely abstract whereas others incorporate symbolic and representational elements. I have chosen to work on 20×20 wood boards to give continuity to the 20-year theme and to create the pieces in encaustic as a medium that provides fantastic possibilities for texture and colour, but also poses interesting challenges and unexpected outcomes to the creation process. Much like the process of migration itself, the process of creation has come with many surprises and has asked me to adapt to constantly changing circumstances.

Pandemic Passions – Nancy MacNabb
The Covid-19 Pandemic has been an emotional experience for all. Painting has always been an emotional release for MacNabb and beginning in January 2020 she naturally turned to the canvas to express, in an intuitive abstract fashion, some of her fear, heartbreak, loneliness and struggles for hopefulness across eighteen months, shared by many.
Nancy MacNabb is a retired physician, trained to think. Yet she also has a large emotional side to her personality. Thinking and feeling meet in her art. Largely self taught, her acrylic paintings portray cohesion in complexity, small stories told in vibrant colours and dynamic markings.
