Nick Peña
From the Bottom Up - Nick Peña - Contemporary Landscape/Abstract Painting

2017

About

Peña’s works range from painting to multimedia installations that question the ever-changing psychological landscape of America; asking the viewer to re-examine their perceptions of the “American Dream” and the affects that pursuit has on our environment. In "From the Bottom Up", Peña takes a more traditional approach to representing a landscape with bold and vivid colors and contrasts the image with a more abstracted and chaotic foreground consisting of arrows and cut Sintra board to act simultaneously as an obstruction and window into the image. The work is framed with a 1 inch white border. Nick Peña is an Associate Professor in Visual Arts at Christian Brothers University. He earned his B.F.A. from the School of Art and Design at Southern Illinois University –Carbondale; his M.F.A from the University of Missouri –Columbia; and has studied abroad at the Hospital field Centre for Art & Culture in Arbroath, Scotland. Peña’s work has been showcased in gallery and museum exhibitions both locally and nationally and published in New American Paintings.
