Nigel Van Wieck is an American painter who lives and works in New York.
In 1995 his work was exposed at The Venice Biennale’s Centennial Exhibition, in Venice.
For the past five years, he had three exhibition at Galerie Elisabeth Michitsch, in Vienna.
It doesn’t take long for art critics to mention Edward Hopper when commenting the work of Nigel Van Wieck.
And with good reasons. Here’s an excerpt from a short essay written by art critic and independent curator
David Galloway for the exhibition Escape held in Vienna at the Galerie Elisabeth Michitsch:
For nearly two decades, Nigel Van Wieck has been evolving a distinctive idiom firmly rooted in the tradition of American realism.
His small-format oils offer glimpses of classic Americana: racetracks and baseball fields, toy sailboats skimming over a pond,
tourists relaxing on sun-drenched beaches. Typically his are solitary figures, often recalling the loners once celebrated by Edward Hopper,
and though there is no Hopperesque gloom here, at moments there emerges a vague sense of the ominous. (first published in ARTnews, February 2011).
