Geometric Redux Study after Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks

Andre Brik
Hopper is one of my favorite North American artists. The loneliness in Hopper's paintings is almost palpable. Even characters represented side by side are isolated souls dealing with their issues. The depressed, anxious, and self-absorbed people, portrayed by Hopper at the beginning of the last century, have a high similarity to those we find today. The difference is that now, the silent people in restaurants, public transportation, and bedrooms are staring at their smartphones, socializing only through social media, with their faces reflected by blue screens. For me, Hopper created a timeless portrait of loneliness and isolation. Nighthawks represent this mood very well, and that's why I chose this artwork to pay homage to this great artist with a geometric redux.
