David Nigh

Chicago, IL, United States

I have been attracted to the ordinary of everyday, not always sure why a certain subject matter appeals to me. I tend to explore the same subject or situation, multiple times; whether it is a simple color shift, or adding and/or subtracting from the original situation. Truth, beauty, and humor can be found all around us. When the mind is silent, the universe presents something not considered before. Sometimes. But sometimes it’s just an empty parked car, and you just have to keep going. I'm a Chicago based plein air and studio painter. Concentrating on watercolors and acrylics, while infusing a love for Sharpies®. My subject matter spans the urban grid, with a focus on the intimate scenes within it, traveling outward as the grid gives way to the vast expanses of the midwest. Not so much interested in depicting the immediately recognizable locales within this heartland, but rather the common themes found, no matter where I go.
