Nigel Cox is an Irish born, London based artist whose oil on canvas paintings, in his own words – ‘Focus on the individual, removing them from usually crowded urban scenes and placing them in centre stage.  Surprising how much confidence they have when removed from the crowd.’  I think I understand exactly what he means – the figures in each painting seem to come to life and shine more brightly with the absence of a backdrop, almost as if they were performing…

He describes his work, which he refers to as photorealistic minimalism, and his background (including his travels around the world with the Transglobe Expedition) in more detail here, and his blog is here.

An Urban Solitude

The Kuni Inversion

Happy, Happy, Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you all had lots of fun ringing in the new year… I couldn’t have had a nicer one – good music, good company, it snowed, and I even got a kiss at midnight 😉

It’s been a hell of a decade hasn’t it?  I hope it’s been mostly good for you, and I hope you’re all as excited to be heading into a new one as I am.  A big thank you to you all for reading my blog, and for your feedback and comments 🙂

So, to start Twenty Ten on a positive note, here’s a little help with your New Years’ resolutions in the form of the 2010 resolution generator over at Monina Velarde’s site ….

Here’s what it told me… ahem 😛

And to get you in the mood, here’s a little tune for the New Year – enjoy 🙂
