IMPRINTS – JOHN WENTZ {ARTIST TO WATCH}

tumblr_nozihzPYQX1trtc5oo5_1280

John Wentz is a contemporary painter whose process resides in an area between rigid technicality and honest expression. Working within the classical idiom of the human figure, his goal is to reduce and simplify the image to it’s core fundamentals: composition, color, and paint application. Wentz limits his palette to blue-greens and reds as a way to explore the emotive qualities and relationships of color while experimenting with cropping and vast negative space as the essence of composition. Paint application and brush strokes are broad and simplified as a means to connect and convey these ideas to the viewer in a way that only painting can.

On June 6th, 2015 Wentz will be having a solo show at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco. Will be there to cover it, so check back to see more of John’s amazing work.
