Nico “Abstract C”
16 x 16 inches, oil on canvas
Nico's impact on the art scene is like his work: big and bold. With his abstract paintings measuring as large as 96 inches wide, Nico’s statement is less about detail and all expressive movement. Using plastering trowels and wide brushes, he applies hyped-up color and large quantities of pumice, paint and other liquid mediums to reveal deep texture, layer upon layer that hold the history of the paint. The result provokes viewers directly to wonder and want to know more.
