Nancy Calef - Peoplescapes


This transformational journey in words and 149 full color paintings and drawings, chronicles Nancy Calef's evolution from child model, suffering anorexia and bulimia, through her recovery and maturation into a multi-disciplined artist renowned for her innovative "Peoplescapes": vibrant plein-air colors applied to exaggerated snapshots of the human condition. Characters are often rendered in 3D, sculpted on the canvas, with found objects, symbolism and commentary, together producing a razor sharp narrative on issues facing society.
 
Driven by honest self-examination and daily commitment to convert her self-destructive energy into creative expression and physical exercise, Calef provides in these pages a method for others to help themselves transcend deep emotional and physical obstructions. More than a cocktail table art book, Peoplescapes: My Story From Purging To Painting ($22.95) is an around-the-world tale of self-discovery, courage, and love, at turns hilarious and heart-breaking, while Calef's luminous talent shines through.
 
Nancy Calef is a contemporary American painter, multi-media artist, and a singer-songwriter. This is her first memoir.
