Thomas Nozkowski

Thomas Nozkowski  R 4  2001  oil on museum board  12 3/4" x 15 3/4"

Thomas Nozkowski makes wonderfully evocative abstract paintings, prints and drawings. He usually works on a smallish scale with simple tools like a brush, paint and pencils. What strikes me with his work is the consistency of his vision and modesty of his materials. There is nothing bombastic or over blown with his approach. Each image is worked and reworked until it coalesces into a finished piece. The work seems to free associate itself into existence. Although the work is complex the finished piece never seems labored over, it is as if he willed them into the world and we, the viewers. are the beneficiaries.
