Opening Reception: Saturday, October 5 from 5pm to 7pm
Landscape painter Alexangel Estevez passionately believes the American landscape contains essential information that explains much about our great, complex land and its people. He thus decided to move from his home in East Los Angeles to the East Coast to study and hone his skills at expressing his unique vision of the American landscape.
The artist has developed a personal style of expressing, in his paintings, direct, almost primal, visions of the scenes he has experienced. This goal, to create images that engage the viewer by conveying an underlying truth about the landscape, distinguishes his work from a myriad of landscape painters working today.
As a gallery that exhibits works by some of the best known artists in the area, American Painting Fine Art always seeks to discover original approaches to the art of painting. Mr. Estevez clearly demonstrates familiarity with the past and prevailing schools of landscape painting, but takes the pursuit further, and in unexpected directions. His palette, often limited–but always rich–and his emphasis on design and form leave an imprint on our memory. His paintings ultimately serve his purpose, to convey personal, expressive, unforgettable responses to the scenes before him.
A catalog with images of all paintings, and poems by poet Paul A. Winder, is available.
