Rabbit after the Durer by John Nieto
Hand Signed Limited Edition Serigraph on Paper
The bold imagery of Nieto’s dynamic style is the essence of his art through which he sought to evoke a reaction or response from the viewer. His art is a synthesis of his philosophy and his technical versatility, a powerful expression of pride and vitality. Nieto was unique among contemporary American artists. His personal philosophies were a vital element of his consummate style. Nieto stated, “I employ a subject matter that is familiar and expresses it the way I see it”.
It is the manner in which Nieto's subjects are painted, solitary figures that are determined, proud, and imbued with a sense of monumentality that the viewer hopes to be a part of and relates to. The fortitude of individual character is backed by the plane of the American West.
