Wk 14 – Artist Conversation – Nicole Alvarez

This week I decided to write about the work of Nicole Alvarez. Her painting of corner liquor stores is incredible. She says she likes using liquor stores for their florescent lighting and she tries to recreate the glow they give off at night. This is to lure in the observer similar to the way the lights lure customers into the stores. Her work was very nice and I really felt drawn to the works. The colors brought me in and the rest of the painting kept me staring at the work of art.
