Analysis and Critique by David Genovesi

;

 

;

You have an interesting history. You've seen a lot of art in your days, from the inside. This has certainly honed your eye. What I note immediately is a general desire in your work to enter as deep into the painting as possible, to penetrate the surface barrier and offer a big view. The perspective is effective in achieving this result and it is enhanced with lights and reflections.

Technically you are there. Nothing is out of place and it is obvious that a good deal of planning goes into your paintings. The talent that is evident in your paintings is the ability to create a mood, a sensual style that is inviting and draws the viewer in. This is enhanced by the misty, slightly out-of-focus overall effect. You are a painter in the best sense of the word. I notice you sometimes paint over a pre-textured surface. I'm not sure how effective that is.

 There is a tendency to slip over onto the sentimental side, the scenes sometimes become a bit "dreamy" and ideal, sometimes pretty. You want to please your audience but they are not tested in any way, which of course is not a crime. Your work has great appeal, I'm sure you know that, but they may lack that "unpredictable" element. Nonetheless, the paintings are impressive.

There was no information on the size of "Downtown Blue", but it is a painting that works at any size, but the bigger the better for its impact. What is most evident is the treatment of the light from the sky, from the water, from the streetlights, from the reflected buildings. Light is the protagonist in this work, almost above the subject matter. The triangles you use to divide the canvas are brilliant compositional devices. The slightly higher vantage point into the painting places the viewer as an observer of the scene and not a participant. The dark umber under the fence serves as a strong, firm foundation and grounding device. The eye is led into and around the painting discovering the details that are nicely modeled where they need to be and left a bit vague where they are not necessary. All the elements in the painting, including the deep, rich, saturated color reinforce and enhance the appreciation of the spectacle you present.
In "Downtown Blue" the sensations are transmitted. Similar to the sensations generated by the French Impressionists, with a slightly Pop sensibility thrown in. You have an eye for composition and the balance of forces within the painting. This painting, more than the others, is witness to that.
