Nathaniel C. Praska created layered pieces while at the same time treating them with an immediacy like that of someone scrawling on a wall under an interstate bridge. He embraces the vandalism and detritus of the abandoned pieces in his environment, transmogrifying the elements found there in his work. Using his background as a traditional oil painter, Praska communicated oblique signifiers or direct symbols that reflect anxiety, absurdity, isolation, and paranoia.
