|John Stopciati on Painting
Since the 70's the historical and scenic splendour of this land
has and continues to be the dominant inspiration for my paintings,
as I portray the effects of light and the forces of this world, as it
perpetually recreates itself with the passing of time.
My paintings reflects the countless hours and years of intimate
study and discovering these natural surroundings,thus,
continually enhancing my abilities to faithfully portray nature,
displaying them as a visual journal of my travels and
experiences, preserving them for generations to come.
Over the many years of using various techniques and
application of texture, colour, and shapes, my passion continues
to take me on an endless journey to capture the elusive and
challenging subject of light, and how it displays the profound depth
and elements of our fragile nature which we are inseparably
linked to. My paintings lure the viewer to absorb the scents and
sounds in a visual suspension of a fleeting moment in a
landscape, already disappearing in my own lifetime.
I hope my desire to share these paintings will enhance peoples
lives by recalling their own personal experiences, and with
the natural world, bringing attention to the not-so-obvious,
all of which make up this wonderful world.
