New York City Windowscapes are a group of paintings from Nils Hasche-Vasquez's current work depicting a variety of Window Landscape scenes of NYC. The Windowscapes are used as a moniker to dialogue about the nature of The City, as a mixture of the completely banal and the utterly spectacular and my color palette is intentionally nonrepresentational. My Windowscapes depict photographed, witnessed or synthesized archetypical views of NYC and beyond from and through windows. These conceptual perceptions employ the picture plane to demonstrate the severity of the urban landscape embodied by monumental forms juxtaposed with tightly bound and closely cropped dwellings found in everyday life in NYC.
My fine arts career began in childhood from the influences of my mother, grandfather and various family friends who were artists themselves. My professional career began as I studied for my BFA at FIT and pursued as many exhibition opportunities as I could find. I have been showing consistently since 2005 while also obtaining my graduate degree at SVA. Most notably I was featured in Art Buzz 2014 tabletop book, Studio Visit Magazine, Black Tie Magazine, New York Times in 2009 and interviewed on the Nikki Rich Radio Show. This year my artwork has and will be featured in the following exhibitions; Masur Museum of Art 51st Annual Juried Competition in Monroe LA, Fourth Unitarian Universalist Valentine’s Day Charity Auction, Elite Professionals Trump Tower World Bar Charity Donation to benefit the Philippine Typhoon Relief Effort, Chamard Vineyards, Farm, Winery and Bistro Ivoryton CT, Four-4-Four Barrett Art Center Poughkeepsie NY, Senses Salon-Torche’ Spring Exhibition New York NY, and The 2014 New York Art Expo
