F.A.N. Gallery is please to show the paintings of Nick Weber. Nick is an award winning artist and a graduate of Stanford University. He shows in New York and the Hamptons. Nick’s beautifully textured paintings of figures emerging out of shadow are wonderful. His nocturnes depict points of light that faintly illuminate a setting.

What draws you to painting the figure? Do you like to paint the figure in your own studio or do you like to see the figure in their own environment/home setting?
“I think I keep painting the figure because I am one myself. The impulse to paint is similar to the impulse to touch.”

What is your first creative memory or the first time you connected to something artistic?
“When I was 7 I won the Kellogg’s ‘Stick up for Breakfast’ contest… a nationwide contest where kids drew Snap, Crackle ‘n’ Pop, Tony the Tiger, etc. I won a ten speed bike! Then I became obsessed with drawing baseball and football players: Tony Dorsett, Terry Bradshaw. I just found a few from 30 years ago, they have great rhythm.”
Come by the gallery and check out Nick’s work.
