Thomas Nozkowski (b. 1944, Teaneck, New Jersey) received a B.F.A. from The Cooper Union Art School, New York in 1967. Known for his richly colored and intimately scaled abstract paintings, Nozwkoski began exhibiting in group shows in 1973 and made his solo debut in 1979. By 1982, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, had acquired a painting from an early one-person exhibition for their permanent collection. To date, Nozkowski’s paintings have been featured in more than 300 museum and gallery exhibitions worldwide, including over 70 solo shows. Nozkowski chose to use yarn made from allo in the background areas to express the washy brushy aspects of his paintings and he oversaw every aspect of the design of his carpet.
