For his second solo exhibition at Bowery Gallery, Nagib Nahas will present a group of paintings that is a continuation of the series of streetscapes and residential landscapes displayed in his previous show at the gallery. Most of the works are of Bay Ridge in Brooklyn, NY where the artist resides.
The artist writes: "The formal process of these paintings is guided by the representation of certain aspects of a setting's appearance as perceived from a specific vantage. The design is meant to render the order of the setting's arrangement, and the color, or tone, to denote the quality of its light and atmosphere. The aim is to arrive at a correspondence between the painted image and its reference: to establish a relationship between a pictorial statement and a transient state of physical appearance."
