Nevin Hirik


It has been a while since I have come across an artist whose work spoke to me as much as that of Nevin Hirik. Of course, there is the soft and feminine factor that I am always drawn to. But, there is also a depth and vulnerability that is so easy to identify with.  These paintings are not purely meant to be beautiful (although they are.)  There is almost a melancholy to some of them.  And, then others, a coyness.   Still others, emote a thoughtfulness that seems so familiar and warm.  Do they speak to you, like they are speaking to me?

Beautiful work! Soft & feminine but not sweet. Does that make sense? Really like them!

I love the green piece. I think that piece while soft isn't girly. It would go perfectly in our hallway.
