    About The Work

    Nancy Agati's Portico Series consists of mixed media works on black paper, which emphasize intricately drawn lines and painted brush strokes from handmade, clay-based paint. These images, which display a lace-like, mandala quality, are patterns generated by the repetition of a design element from a carved wooden doorway in Rome. The placement of shape and repetition of pattern within each piece, has become a loose mathematical method for the artist to explore a multitude of visual possibilities.
