DON NICE (1932 - 2019)

Painter and Pop Artist Dies at 86

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of the New York artist Don Nice. Nice was recognized for his Hudson River scenes, oversized still life images and non-traditional shaped canvases. In 1988, he created a special limited edition print of colorful musical instruments for Lincoln Center titled, Festival Predella. We appreciate his artistic contribution to our community and will miss him greatly.

Terry Winters has said that, as a young man mesmerized by Minimalism, he was led by the desire to draw “away from that blankness and toward developing an imagery that could play a role in my work.” This effort precipitated the atmospheric paintings inspired by scientific illustrations of organic specimens for which he first became known in the early 1980s. The seventy—eight works in this retrospective will follow Winters’s development from that time through the more fully abstract approach that has occupied him since the ’90s, with dense weaves of swirling, crisscrossing lines and scattered blips, and will include more recent drawings that reclaim shapes reminiscent of his earliest phase within the more complex spatial context he’s since developed—what he’s called a “vitalized geometry.”
