Louis N. Pontone
These landscape paintings are indicative of my recent artwork and depict both intimate views and sweeping panoramas. Everyday, looking at the land and what nature is offering up, be it the play of light, a pleasing design, or striking color, a composition presents itself. The artist looks into his canvas and draws out his image declaring a style that is the result of his level of skill. New challenges force me to explore technical possibilities while remaining within the boundaries of realistic painting. Greater surface development and texture, losing and finding edges but somehow maintaining the integrity and crispness of some individual brush marks are a hallmark of my approach. My ambition is to turn these lyrical investigations of painting into visual poems – quiet, reflective and decorative.
About The Artwork of Louis N. Pontone
About his paintings, the artist says: “While I aspire that these landscape paintings by lyrical and decorative, subliminally they oten carry over an indescribable ‘edge’ which is an extension of my human nature. Each painting becomes a record and reflection of my personal vision.”
