John SargentAmerican, b. 1961
John Sargent’s paintings are categorized by intensely realistic representations of nature with a concentration on color & light. His focus on nature is not limited to its appearance but expressed as a vehicle and access to questions both philosophical and spiritual. Sargent’s canvases are rich surfaces that appear smooth from a distance but reveal many layers of shifting thoughts and choices upon closer examination. He also has no reservations in embellishing or disturbing his carefully crafted paintings to produce images that are very much an expression of the world today. Beauty and emotion are paramount. Stillness, reverence and meditation are found in his oil on canvas paintings.
John Sargent lives and works in South Euclid, Ohio.
