Breaking the Postmodern Creed: Thomas Nozkowski’s Unimaginable Paintings and Drawings
This lithograph was printed in 2007 by the Vera List print program to raise funds for Lincoln Center It is boldly signed in black marker by Thomas Nozkowski. It also bears a personal dedication to our staffer Kevin. This was obtained by us personally during Nozkowski's 2016 opening at the Pace Gallery in Manhattan, so provenance is direct and irrefutable.

Signature: Personally signed and dedicated our staffer Kevin by Nozkowski at his 2016 PACE Gallery opening. (http://www.pacegallery.com/exhibitions/12789/works-on-paper)
Signed by Nozkowski in person for us at his PACE opening so provenance is direct.
Solidly grounded in Abstract Expressionist tradition, process-oriented painter Thomas Nozkowski’s method is predicated on relinquishing the idea of an end result. To highlight this, in 2010 the Pace Gallery exhibited his oil paintings in tandem with oil on paper companions, thematically similar iterations depicting another direction each painting could have taken. Drawing inspiration from patterns and shapes in the environments around him, Nozkowski’s work is characterized by vivid color, an accumulation of geometrical and organic shapes, and experimentation with the figure-ground relationship.
