"Jerry Ross: Ritratti degli amici italiani - Portraits of Italian Friends"
2006-10-03 until 2006-11-30
La Follette Gallery and Framing
Eugene, OR, USA United States of America

During October and November 2006, La Follette Gallery and Framing hosts Jerry Ross exhibition entitled Ritratti degli amici italiani - Portraits of Italian Friends. Jerry Ross states about his art, My interest in portraiture is inspired by the Italian i macchiaioli, early Picasso portraiture, and by the work of Frank Duveneck, a 20th century American painter. My portraits have a strong graphic quality with large sections of one color.

In Carlo, my painting style focuses on close-up portraiture, a painting style influenced both by computer technology and photography. I seek a special kind of realism informed by the poetics of the person revealed in light, preferably bright sunlight, where the reflections create bold forms that can be studied in the laboratory of the studio and explored with pigments.

I like to push the paint around in a bold and uninhibited manner, guided by my research into distortions created on my computer. I utilize the principlesof abstraction to reconstruct the image based upon an analysis of the optical information revealed to me in color ink jet prints, continues Ross.

Jerry Ross has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2000. View more of his work at http://www.absolutearts.com/portfolios/r/rossjerry/.
