Through July 28, Craig Paul Nowak will have a Solo Show of new work at Nextstep Studio & Gallery.
Only one year out of The College for Creative Studies (Detroit), Craig Paul Nowak has been published in Modern Painters’ May and June issues; as well as in Arte Al Dia, an international Spanish/English publication out of Miami, Fla.; and Arte Al Limite, a strictly Spanish magazine that will be publishing a full article on Nowak in their upcoming issue – the July-August edition. His work will also be published in the book, “Contemporary Masters.”
Craig Paul Nowak’s paintings are a subjective interpretation of what it means to be human. He begins his work using what he calls “the primary identifiers of humankind.” These identifiers consist of two things, a person’s visual appearance and their corresponding inner consciousness.
Nowak’s work is unified by the self portrait. He paints himself because as he says, “The only inner-self that anyone can know and understand, is their own.”
But Nowak’s work is not exclusively self-centered or introverted. Some universal and external concerns that he’s discussed in his paintings include, divorce, death, influence, education, anxiety, past and future identities as they relate to the present, and personal relationships with people and/or objects.
