Kathleen Cullen Gallery is pleased to present the work of Nick Wildermuth. The exhibition of small paintings opens Saturday March 21st from 6 to 8 and runs through Saturday April 11.
My works are contemporary still life paintings depicting accumulations of domestic decorations such as plants, abstract sculptures and other objects. These objects are broken down into basic shapes, patterns and colors, which are set against simplified and subtle backdrops. I layer the paint using a variety of techniques and mediums creating interesting contrasts in color and texture throughout the paintings. The differing color compositions are capable of triggering different emotional reactions from happy and content to sad and lonely. These paintings are compacted glimpses into larger living spaces.
