    Art Brokerage: Nance O'Banion American Artist: b. 1949-2018. Nance O'Banion was an Oakland based American artist who "pioneered creative explorations of handmade paper". She is known for her sculptural paper works and book works which focus on themes of change and transformation. In 1970 O'Banion began to explore the use of handmade paper as a sculptural medium. By 1977 she was "well known for her long involvement in the Bay Area fiber arts movement". Her artworks ranged from large, public sculptures to unique limited-edition books to drawn or painted wood tablets. Over the last two decades her work underwent a striking transformation, both in scale, from the grand to the intimate, and in content, from the abstract to the symbolic. This was due in part to neurological changes and their resulting perceptual insights, but also to a growing desire to communicate a more intensely personal vision in her work. This most recent body of work was featured in the solo exhibition Present Tense at California College of the Arts in 2016, which included 11 books and over 650 drawings documenting her unique and introspective personal journey.
