#5715 Overgrown Barn: Impressionist En Plein Air Landscape Painting on Linen




#5715 Overgrown Barn, 2019 by Harry Orlyk (Impressionistic, en plein air autumn landscape of a sunlit barn in a field) oil on linen mounted on homasote board, ready to hang as is 14.5 x 14.5 inches unframed Signed lower right corner Harry Orlyk is celebrated for his ability to capture rural country landscapes with impressionistic brushstrokes and bright color palettes. Painting daily, the artist drives throughout the upstate New York, stopping to observe and paint 'en plain air' whenever and wherever a landscape strikes him. Orlyk prefers to leave his canvases unframed to reveal the exposed linen which are nailed to sturdy homasote boards for easy installation. This painting is a perfect example of Orlyk's impressionistic aesthetic. Here, the artist captures a quaint country landscape in a range of warm, golden tones. Orlyk's signature use of soft yellows creates a gently luminous atmosphere. The scene is made with gestural strokes of paint that culminate onto a textured, impasto surface. The artist's signature is located in the lower right corner. The artist prefers to leave his paintings unframed. The painting can be installed with one nail, hammered behind the linen and through the homasote board. About the artist: Harry Orlyk was born in Troy, New York in 1947. In 1971 after graduating college, he went on to graduate school at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln . Over the next nine years, he was influenced by several Nebraskan artists. "Still-life painter Robin Smith taught me how to use paint without turpentine - to paint from the tube." He also admits the influence of photographer Lawrence McFarland who taught him what spiritual space was, and how to emphasize it. Lastly he credits well-known Lincoln painter Keith Jacobshagen with having impressed on him the importance of routine. He currently resides with his family in Salem, New York, near the Vermont border. About the work: For anyone raised in the country, Harry Orlyk’s impressionist oil paintings spark a sense memory that is at once shared and deeply personal. His work evokes a return to days spent as a kid when you played behind “Old Hap’s Barn”, or played hide-and-seek in the cornfield. If raised in the city, Orlyk’s paintings illustrate what you fantasized living in the country would be like. With each changing day and season, Orlyk reminds us of the simplistic beauty inherent in rural, small town America.
