Nick Savides
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope

Media:Painting; Drawing;


ARTIST STATEMENT: My paintings have a calming effect; if they were music, the melody would be soft and soothing. Influenced by artists such as Jan Vermeer and Edward Hopper, I strive to create paintings that capture a sense of time and place. They draw you in with the familiar and show you more than you expected. They invite you to interpret them by inventing your own versions of the stories behind them. I'm inspired by the effects of light, and by people going about their everyday lives - in the city, the country, at home or when traveling. I work out the basic composition onsite and start to get ideas about what I will do. I like to spend time with the composition and reflect and refine. For this reason, I continue the process in the studio, beginning with a small oil sketch to make sure the composition is bold enough to carry across the room.
