Artist Statement

Contemporary artist Jerry Maloney, uses a realistic style that falls somewhere between Impressionism and Photo-realism which creates soothing yet vibrant images that are reminiscent of the "Luminists" school of painting."I have always been inspired by the beauty of light in nature. Painters such as Bierstadt, Church, and Inness have always been major influences in my art along with many of the Impressionists" states the talented artist. These influences are readily apparent in the beautiful oil paintings of Florida Colorado and landscapes that fill the walls of his Spring Hill studio. Although landscapes and seascapes are the artist's preferred subjects, he is equally proficient in portraiture, still life, caricature, graphic design (digital or traditional) and cartooning. Oil paint on canvas is the most common choice of medium for the artist closely followed by acrylic paint, pastel chalk, colored pencil and water color.

Drawing and painting since childhood, this emerging artist received his formal training from the University of Michigan's School of Art, Colorado University's Colorado Mountain College, St. Petersburg College, Florida State University (where he received a Bachelors Degree in Studio Art) and through numerous workshops conducted by many prominent artists. Since then he has continued to paint and teach art privately while also participating in many shows, art festivals and exhibitions. This artistic growth and productivity has resulted in numerous awards, commissions and purchases by both corporate and private collectors in the United States and Europe. Mr. Maloney continues to seek out quality galleries and other venues to exhibit and display his fine art oil paintings in the future.


The beautiful images of Florida and Colorado landscapes depicted in the fine art oil paintings displayed in this online gallery are about many things. When artist Jerry Maloney is asked what his paintings are about and the motivation behind them, he states that, "The paintings are mostly about nature. They are about the land, the water, the sky and everything that is alive within them. They are about the many things that make our planet an endless canvas of beauty. It may be impossible for an artist to recreate the grandeur of Colorado mountains or the brilliance of a Florida sunset, but it is those images that inspire me to capture in my oil paintings what Mother Nature does so effortlessly. The motivation for my original art comes from the need to record those images before they are sacrificed to the urban sprawl that has steadily consumed our planet and the life it has created. My desire is to somehow capture not only the beauty of nature, but also some of my feelings towards the wonderful places that I have been and seen. It is my hope that others will view my artwork and be able to share a small part of those feelings". The talented artist's paintings are all "one of a kind, fine art originals" and not reproduced in any manner. Mr. Maloney believes that the current trend followed by many artist, is to have their original work reproduced as a Giclee' (a print on canvas) or to make endless paintings of their best sellers, just modifying the colors or minor details slightly and then calling them "originals". The artist further states "that if an art buyer is willing to pay hundreds up to thousands of dollars for one of these so called "originals" he or she should consider buying a comparably priced true, one of a kind original from an emerging artist such as myself or others. By doing so, he or she will have a painting that is not only unique, but one that has a greater potential to rise in value"....
