“…Nolan’s translucent canvases [are] light itself…her illumination seems to come from within the imagery—as the series title, “Issues” indicates. Using fine glazes and subtle tonal modulations, she makes the light appear to emanate from the paint itself.”
“Nolan’s studies of the equinox moon [are] a poetic subject that transcends geographic distinction. Her scenes…concentrate on the mysterious aura of the moon itself. The landscape, bathed in darkness, is barely distinguishable, while the dominant moon commands attention.”
“…Emphasis is on mood rather than the specifics of place. A dramatic cleft, clogged with russet foliage, with the rising sun turns…the branches seem to dissolve in light…Nolan combines observation with
painterly technique to achieve impressionistic effects…”
