Thomas Nozkowski, abstract painter

Thomas Nozkowski

Thomas Nozkowski was born in New Jersey in 1944. He received his BFA from the Cooper Union in 1967, and currently lives and works in NewYork. A critically acclaimed and influential abstract painter, Nozkowski’s work is characterized by innovative color and composition. Based on close observation of his surroundings, Nozkowski’s abstracted forms are derived from shapes and patterns found in nature and from man made objects in the urban environment. This inspiration provides unexpected arrangements of color and form which can be equally jarring or beautiful, and always strikingly original in feeling. Nozkowski has created some forty print editions since 1990, and the genesis of this body of work is tied intimately to the drawing process. His work can be found in numerous public collections such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Hirshhorn Museum,and the Brooklyn Museum.
