Meet the Future at NEST Modern
Sandy Whitby is an abstract painter who uses texture and a sophisticated color palette as part of her signature style. She has studied at the Ivy School of Professional Art and Laroche College, and worked as an art assistant for the “Mister Rogers Neighborhood” show, and many other television stations. While working at an advertising agency, she rekindled her love for fine art. She now resides in San Antonio, TX where she was recently a part of the McNay’s exhibit, “Meet the Future 2016: A Pop-up Exhibition. You can stop by NEST Modern in Austin or San Antonio to view her latest collection.
Her paintings bring the viewer into a world of textural abstraction and rich colors. They evoke a dream-like etherealism, blending abstract representations with a raw textural quality. Her late mentor and painter, Alberto Mijangos said, “Her experience as a graphic artist, her selection of color as spiritual reference, and her use of materials request my participation in her dreams of mystical geometry.”
