Matt Chinian
Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY (En Plein Air Cityscape Painting in Black Wood Frame)

$950 Asking Price


Modern, en plein air cityscape painting of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY oil on canvas board in black wood frame 17.5 x 21.5 inches framed 11.5 x 15.5 inches unframed This contemporary cityscape painting was made by en plein painter, Matt Chinian, in 2017. Chinian is celebrated for his landscapes of rural upstate New York. The gallery currently represents a series of recent cityscape paintings that capture city scenes of Brooklyn and the Hudson Valley region. This painting was made using a palette knife and brush. Paint was applied in textural layers, creating an impasto effect upon the surface. The industrial landscape is created with gestural strokes while long dark shadows contrast against a bright, light blue winter sky. This painting is complimented with a black wood frame and has wire pre-installed for instant hanging. The artist's signature is located on the front and back of the painting. Artist Statement & CV: I am a landscape painter living in Cambridge, NY, with my wife and two daughters. I paint what I see, and Upstate NY has subject in legion. There is the natural beauty of the mountains, rivers, lakes. There are farms, villages, cities and factories. There are stately homes and trailers, churches and gas stations, and I love them all. The light that falls on our world illuminates everything without judgment and can make the ugly beautiful, that beauty is what I seek and want to show you. Born 1961 Cambridge, Ma.
