Nancy Graves explored the interplay between the replication of nature and the formal values of abstract art in her wide variety of works throughout her life. Thought she first gained attention with her realistic, life-sized camel sculptures, she was later inspired to draw, paint and print by visual representations of natural phenomena, like weather and moon maps. In the 1980s, she translated these flat works into three-dimensional drawings. Painted with colorful patinas that reflected the brilliant tones of her paintings, watercolors and prints, these abstract structures were associated with the real world by the found objects and casts of natural and man-made forms.
