Blocky layers of umber, green, purple, black and white overlap in excited movements. Small details in black and gold stenciling move the eye. A collaged bit of text in the top center reads, "Life is either a daring adventure or..." Nicholas Foschi's latest work is a motif of the mid-century modern era. He depicts bridges and buildings from east coast cities. Nicholas builds up layers of paint that he then scrapes to unveil previous details.

Nicholas Foschi’s abstract paintings are bold and optimistic. He seeks to bring energy and movement to the canvas and achieves this through contrasting colors and varying brushstrokes. The pieces appear simple, but up close they are complex, with many delicate and deliberate markings. Like watching clouds shift in the sky, the abstraction can conjure different configurations depending on how you look at it. The colors, tangerine and shades of blue, are bright and solid, but not quite primary. His compositions and colors keep you looking into the work for something, searching, feeling on the edge of the familiar and novel.
