Franklin Art Scene at the Visitor Center
View Nikki Commander’s beautiful pantings at the Visitor Center during Franklin Art Scene on Friday, Nov. 5!
Nikki’s vivid and provocative artworks are reflective of the joy and gratitude she experiences through creative expression. Using acrylic paints, inks, and various mark-making implements, her process begins with intuitive and expressive mark-making, without regard to rhyme or reason. Layer by layer, mark by mark, the painting begins to reveal a composition. Subsequent layers are added, leaving some of the earlier components visible beneath. This is done, not with the intention to cover up the chaotic underlayer, but to draw attention to the most interesting elements below the surface.
