Artist Statement

Self expression and awareness, inspired by others, by ideas; by the effects of light, color, and texture, is satisfied within me by the creation of paintings. I have always been attracted to patterns of color more then the detail of objects, explaining my attraction to abstraction. While painting, I often find myself taking my eyes out of focus in order to simplify the work. Paint is applied in a thick and forceful manner in order to convey energy and movement. I choose light and temperature of color as a tool to create a specific fee.ling. Acrylic, metallic, permanent marker, and oil paint are combined as a means to achieve contrast. By painting impressions and abstractions, I believe the viewer becomes involved in a process to understand the work, to contribute to the work, making a connection between my art and the viewer.

Review
Paintings by Nigel Cooper appeared to be seen through the dark prism like Le Sidenier with illuminated figures and buildings in the distance. The technique of painting was very original in that the pigments appeared to be drawn with some force across the surface of the canvas.
