New York based artist Charles Nikas creates dream-like yet compelling abstract expressionistic works. His color saturated images are composed using a variety of mediums,including acrylic and spray acrylic paint, chart and mesh tape, gold and silver leaf, printers ink and film transparencies- all expertly arranged on paper or glass. Nikas' art is dynamic and intense. As rich in palette as it is, they are all a credit to the new millenium of artists whose works are infused with energetic rendering, complex imagery and layers of symbolism.The work is meant to ignite an intimite response in the viewer, both on a mental and emotional plane. As he explains "Each image depicts metaphysical forces that are personal, yet undeniably extricates individual emotions, messages, and visions from the viewer." What results are unforgettable pieces that transcend context to reflect the intricate and multifaceted realities of human existence on the very level of the soul.
