Original oil on board by Utah artist Ryan Cannon
Unframed 36" x 48"
Artist Statement: I have been developing my method and style of painting since I picked up a brush. The textures and consistency of oil paint has fascinated me, experimenting with simplification, color and shapes. I believe that art becomes impressive when it is not totally comprehensive to the viewer. My method involves trying to give as much information as I can with as minimal strokes as possible, giving the viewer time to discover the narrative in their own way. The work I do is more focused on form, shape and color then any one subject or message, however I do enjoy and reflect on what I paint and do try to capture the emotions I feel when around these subjects, especially by the colors I use. My paintings are spontaneous works of the places, people and things around me I feel worth remembering.
