Thomas Nozkowski will feature a selection of never-before-seen paintings on paper by the artist. The richly-colored and intimately-scaled abstract works push the limits of visual language and exemplify Nozkowski’s approach to artmaking, while inviting viewers to explore the possibilities of seeing. Serving to document his paintings in process, these works capture specific moments within the evolution of his paintings. The pieces reflect on specific places and experiences, translating sensations and memories into fully abstract compositions.

In 2009, Nozkowski was the subject of a solo exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada. This presentation marked the largest exhibition devoted to his work and featured over 60 paintings produced over the course of 20 years. To date, Nozkowski’s paintings have been featured in more than 300 museum and gallery exhibitions worldwide, including over 80 solo shows. In September 2021, Pace will present an exhibition in New York comprising the final 15 paintings created by the beloved artist before his passing in 2019 in a celebration of his distinctive and influential practice and lifelong commitment to teaching.

Concurrently on view is Adolph Gottlieb, a solo exhibition showcasing eight pictographs by the pioneering New York-based Abstract Expressionist, who was an active part of the East Hampton creative community from the early 1960s onward.

Thomas Nozkowski

For Thomas Nozkowski, an awareness of perception and the desire to explore the possibilities of seeing is at once grounded in reality and released from specific legibility. His concurrent practices of painting and drawing reflect on specific places and experiences—from the deeply symbolic to the notational—translating sensations and memories into abstract compositions.
