“Vertical” by Nik Ridley


This piece was literally inspired by the energy and flow of people walking by as I was painting it live (@ High Point Shoes in Scottsdale Fashion District, Arizona). This was also the first time that I allowed a wood medium to be a part of the process. I was thinking about Clyfford Still and his approach to painting and the faces just…appeared. I tend to allow the different color swatches and strokes to dictate what the picture will be, so to speak, and to let the art create itself.
