Arctic Exploit

Mary Spencer Nay (American, 1913 - 1993)

1959 Lacquer on board 
Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Horner 

Created in a non-objective style, the cool colors and almost iridescent quality of Mary Spencer Nay’s Arctic Exploit produces an image reminiscent of some remote and icy world where the light of the Aurora Borealis dances across the sky and reflects in the frozen mirrored earth.
