CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS FROM THE AMERICAN HEARTLAND SERIES - GALLERY I

The American Heartland Series studies contemporary American landscape painting through the “Manifest Destiny” of our lives as Americans and as human beings.  These paintings are not as much about place as they are about state of mind.  The broad strokes and the subtle layers and shifts of tone, color and shade that make up this series of works are laid out for individual interpretation but at the same time contain a common vocabulary.  In life and in these paintings there is a constant interplay between nature’s fractal patterning or geometry, sometimes referred to as chaos, and our need to interject definition and order, and a sort of freedom, through the rigidity of Euclidean geometry.  Through that very mix of “chaos” and “order”, these paintings explore visual analogies for the cross over between faith and the current perception. “Faith being the substance of things hoped for but not yet seen” – while that which is seen, passes away into the transitory and illusive as our individual perceptions and desires shift.  Contact Stan Hennigh Fine Art about any of these paintings.
