Check out Face To Face: Portraits By Leslie Nolan and Scott Hutchison on exhibit now through April 17, 2016 at the Invitational Gallery, The Mansion at Strathmore, 10701 Rockville Pike, North Bethesda, MD 20852.
My portraits are not meant to be a technical likeness of a particular person, but to depict what is felt rather than what is seen. Because I spent another career keeping secrets in my work abroad, my current interest is to express in painting universal feelings which remain largely hidden in real life. Many of us cloak ourselves behind a veneer of success and confidence despite situations in our lives which wreak havoc with our emotions. In these artworks, we peek into the subjects’ inner worlds as economic, political and social realities swirl around them.
