“Connect” – New Work by Nigel Van Wieck at the Didier Aaron Gallery

New Work by Nigel Van Wieck

The Didier Aaron Gallery in New York presents “Connect”, an exhibition of 35 paintings by one of my favorite contemporary artists, Nigel Van Wieck.

Van Wieck, often considered Hopper-esque for his depiction of isolated subjects in desolate urban landscapes and his manipulation of light and shadow, considers his work to be a snapshot of American life.

Below are several of my personal favorite pieces from the exhibit.
