Today we’d like to introduce you to Harold A. Nelson.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
Been at it for over 40 years. Still, I feel so much yet to learn. I have accomplished a lot and feel very blessed. I hopefully feel my work might “create a pause between the notes of the symphony of my viewer’s chaotic lives.”
Please tell us about your art.
I try to express the subtle human condition… everyday living, everyday scenes without showing actual people doing stuff, just their presence. I don’t want them to dominate the scene. Only occasionally, if telling a specific story, such as “One Spring Day in Acuna” and “Elders of the Dance.”
We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
It’s the nature of what we do. Loney? You’re not busy enough. Lonesome is a different matter. Many ways to eliminate. Find local art groups or group, attend meetings, find people of like-kind. Invite for coffee and talk about Art.
Our business requires a certain isolation in order to get anything done.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
Will be having an exhibit this fall at the Mayo Clinic, 56th street, Phoenix. Also, show in public offices and my website.
