John Nieto
 


Fancy Dancer

Giclee   51" x 42"
 

While Nieto maintains that his art "is the result of an emotional involvement with my subject matter rather than a cerebral one," his powerfully evocative paintings reveal a seamless blend of instinct and keen intelligence. His deft handling of Western motifs - including Native American tribal representatives, warriors, and ceremonial dancers, as well as legendary frontiersmen or indigenous wildlife - demonstrates why these icons still loom large in the national consciousness. Wielding his brush with precision and control, Nieto invests each figure with a mesmerizing presence.

His personal philosophy plays a large role in his approach to art. "I employ subject matter that is familiar and express it from my own perspective," he explains. Nieto's extraordinary ability to project the essential core of his subject-viewed within the context of his own uncompromising vision-accounts for the seemingly impossible task of communicating the stately qualities of these figures without any trace of condescension or hyperbole.
