Recent Press and a new painting

What Lurks Beneath - Nathan Abels - NY Arts

Summer 2011 Issue – NY Arts Magazine


May 20, 2011, Art’s New View: The 12 best Colorado artists 35 and under – The Denver Post. Kyle MacMillan writes;

Residence: Denver

Media: Painting and drawing

Why we like him: Abels creates sublimely understated works that are poised between the real and imagined, with their enigmatic narratives and hushed tonal effects. He has all the ingredients, including refined technique and a wholly distinctive vision, to forge a major national career.

Art-world cred: Emerging artist of the year, The Denver Post, 2009

His take: “My work is primarily realistically based paintings and drawings. They explore the landscape and its inhabitants. Many of my images depict a paused narrative, such as a parachutist in free fall or an encounter with a bison in the woods.”

Influences: David Lynch, Vija Celmins, Henning Kles

Art today: “Artists have access to such a wealth of visual material, it is easy to become overstimulated and difficult to find meaning.”
