"The overall philosophy is simple. There is life and death. There is a beginning and an end. My work reflects this profound simplicity. There are never more than one or two subjects to avoid unnecessary clutter and confusion. My paintings, whether on canvass or paper, are simple, direct and spiritual in nature. Do not try to read or interpret my paintings. You must feel them. Just listen to them and soon all the stories told to me will resound in you."
Eric Abrecht focuses on landscapes, figurative and still-life, mainly with oil on canvas. At times he breaks from this medium to work on smaller pieces, usually acrylic and mixed media on paper. Abrecht works conceptually; drawing from lifetime experiences, and allows the subject of each painting to evolve as he works on the canvas.
John Brandon Sills works in a manner that derives its technical inspiration from the Old Masters and its stylistic appearance from Barbizon and Impressionist painting. Being a classically trained artist, John uses a mastery of drawing to infuse his work with a sense of spontaneity and life.
Kote’s painting origins in the Mediterranean have never truly left him; the warmth of the Grecian sunlight and the lush Mediterranean landscape are still infused in his works. Large, loose brushstrokes and gentle colors are characteristic of Kote’s welcoming seascapes and landscapes.
Donald Sultan rejects the label “still-life painter,” even though renderings of fruit and flowers have defined his long career that has included painting, printmaking, and sculpture. Impossibly black velvety sections of paint, achieved at times with actual tar, have defined his paintings almost as much as his extreme close-ups and simplifications of everyday genre objects.
