Featured artist – Jeremy Mann

San Francisco based Jeremy Mann has quite a style of painting. Here’s a short piece from his bio describing his process:

Executed on medium to large-scale panels, each exciting work demonstrates the artist’s unmistakable style. Working on wood panels provides a strong support, where Mann can utilize a number of techniques: staining the surface, wiping away paint with solvents, and applying broad, gritty marks with an ink brayer. Mann paints with confidence and flair. He addresses complex compositions with a mature eye and his colors are both vivid and atmospheric.

Atmospheric it most certainly is. Mann’s website is divided into Traditional, Compositions and Personal. His Personal section includes portraits, studies and almost cartoon-like work (all incredible). His Compositions section is comprised of monochromatic cityscapes. his Traditional section deals with landscapes, still life, figurative and more expressive  and vivid cityscapes. The cityscapes are what really caught my attention. Because of the nature of my own work I chose to show his city scenes here.

First up is a selection from his Compositions series.

  1. I love the use of his paint thickness and the way he plays with his color choices. Viewing paintings in a monochromatic style is always exciting to me. It’s hard to do but he really handles it beautifully. Thank you for sharing his wonderful talent! A true inspiration for any artist.

    I think his monochromatic work is his best. It’s all about values and layered textures. I agree seeing his originals up close would be a trip! I saw Jim Dine’s huge tool drawing originals and the difference between seeing those and seeing reproductions is like night and day, especially with something on that scale. I could have spent hours looking at just one of those drawings!
