This painting was inspired by a trip the artist took to Oman, where he snorkeled in the reefs off Masara Island in the Arabian Sea. Parts were so shallow he felt as though he was crawling through the water just inches above the coral, captivated by the colors.

Nicholas Kriefall

Saint Charles, Missouri

Nicholas has always been fascinated by the sea. His abstract work is inspired by the relationship between the land and the sea, a symbiosis that undulates from calm to turbulent. “Using colors, shapes, and texture over multiple layers, I explore the comfort and animosity of a place revisited or newly imagined, continuously experimenting with these elements and incorporating a certain emotion as a map spills from mind to canvas,” says Nicholas. He approaches each painting with a title or image in mind, and then experiments with layers of paint, scraping and dissolving color until the texture and color feel right.
