What is it about Nesskain's artwork that arrests my attention? It could be the way that each of his pieces manages to feel intimate without necessarily being erotic. It could be the ethereal palettes of his digital paintings, or the intricacies of his pen and ink comic layouts. Maybe it's his subject matter, juxtaposing urban surrealism with sci-fi subtlety. Maybe it's something that escapes me right now, dancing beyond the cusp of words. Whatever it is, I like it.
