George Billis Gallery presents a solo exhibition of paintings by Nicholas Evans-Cato.

The Brooklyn-based artist draws his inspiration from the continually changing landscape of New York City. States the artist, “these paintings represent an effort to exploit the pictorial potential of the urban grid.” The artist is fascinated by the many different perspectives through which the city can be viewed. At street level, Evans-Cato enjoys depicting shadow and detail, but occasionally feels limited by the narrow horizons dictated by the layout of the streets. He often prefers to climb high above the restrictions of the ground below in search of a loftier view of the city, where he can capture a more satisfying panoramic outlook. High altitudes and wide angles allow him to alter the straight path of the streets below.
