Bach Stained Glass Window

Title:

Note from Bach

Description:

Art Deco and Abstract - Custom Stained Glass Window Panels.
Art Deco is Style with a capital S! Geometry, sheen, glow, color -- pizzazz! And art glass is a perfect medium for Art Deco! Art Deco evolved unconsciously from the preceding prevalent school, Art Nouveau, keeping the natural motifs, but restating concepts boldly instead of in whispers, in bright colors instead of pastel, and adding the arresting visual impact of angular forms that wedded art and industry. Things highly stylized became THE style -- planes, ships, buildings, even people. The "Big Bang" of Art Deco was the international Paris Exposition of 1925, in which the United States did not participate. There was, of course, much reactionary reaction, and stinging criticism of the notion that true art can concern or combine itself with the merely utilitarian world. But Art Deco sparked the art world, which had become the larger world of art AND decoration, and it lives on, fondly admired and desired, even into our New Millennium.

About the Artist:
Nasrene MacDonald was born in India and spent her early years being educated (and disciplined!) by Irish nuns at a boarding school in the mountains of northern Pakistan. Later, her diplomat father took her and the family with him to his various postings in such places as Russia and Switzerland. Her education was continued at a boarding school in Bristol, England, and as a young woman she moved to London, where on recommendation she was admitted to the Chelsea School of Art. Nasrene became accomplished in oil painting, doing portraits and still-lifes in the style of the Old Masters, and she also produced many lovely works in pastels. Now, the vast palette of art glass is hers, and she delights particularly in impressionist floral artworks in stained glass appliqu&eacute. For many years now, Nasrene has been a naturalized Canadian, with an island studio on Lake Opinicon, Ontario, and her stained glass art often takes inspiration from the beautiful flowers grown and shown by her good friend and neighbor Turid Forsyth, internationally noted photographer and superlative gardener. When Nasrene is not at work in her peaceful studio, she's on a nature hike in the beautiful Canadian woods.
Nasrene delights in creating original and unusual artworks in glass, and still more in the intrigued smiles and generous words her art evokes from friends and strangers alike. Her work has been placed across the U.S. and Canada, and as far away as Bermuda, Mexico, Australia, England, Spain, and Germany.
