About the artwork

In tribute to American artist Edward Hopper, Nicolas Velter creates a nocturnal view that synthesises both his attraction to photography and to painting and assemblage. Master of staging, he is inspired by the oils on canvas of the realistic painter who was attentive to social change and expressed, through his work, the nostalgia of a by-gone America as well as the contrast between nature and the modern world. Created in 2010 in Brussels, Miniature #1 reworks his most famous painting, Nighthawks dating from 1942 and representing figures in a diner on New York?s Greenwich Avenue. Given his gift for composition and modelling, Nicolas Velter succeeds in conveying the calm of the theatrical and illusory setting of the painting, plunging us into the intimacy of the bar as well as the silence of the street. A few new elements appear in the photograph, leaving spectators free to interpret the scene according to their imagination.

The artist

Originally from Belgium, Nicolas Velter was born in Brussels in 1981. He started studying photography in 2002 and now works mainly in the worlds of fashion and advertising. Staging is at the heart of his photographic work. The details are deliberately placed and her arrangements are meticulously constructed. Both powerful and touching, his photos attract the spectator’s attention. The atmosphere is sometimes disturbing; leaving an impression that oscillates between harsh and gentle, raw and poetic. There is no doubt often also an element of irony.  ... See more See less
