Tom Nozkowski, Oct 16, 2008

The small size of the drawings and paintings necessitates wrist and hand detailing,not the kinesthetic,haptic automatism of the older generation of the New York School. Drawing, albeit a painterly draftsmanship, therefore is the operative practice in Nozkowski's artwork. The works are like writing: painted with actions of the hand and wrist, articulate, diaristic. Edges, facture, and flourishes are important, like penmanship. Proustian, they are memorial, of memories, at once descriptive, yet open, and poetic.
