The personal artworks of Nike Footwear Design Director, Nathan VanHook, present the simplicity of basic paint strokes evolved into complex processes of color and form. In this solo exhibition the artist also playfully connects the action of his brushwork with the idea of bringing pleasure, i.e., Stroking It. Some pieces exhibit how the artist has stroked over the faces of supermodels from his adolescence. With large canvases, found wood pieces, acrylics and various other mediums, VanHook successfully presents the methods of his making through thousands of painted strokes.
