Matt Chinian
Route 4, Schuylerville, NY (En Plein Air Cityscape Painting of White House)




Modern, en plein air cityscape painting of Schuylerville, NY oil on canvas board, 14 x 16 inches black wood frame, with wire ready to hang This contemporary cityscape painting was made by en plein painter, Matt Chinian, in 2019. 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 Hudson Falls, NY and the surrounding area of the Hudson Valley. This painting was made using a palette knife and brush. Paint was applied in textural layers, creating an impasto effect upon the surface. Trees and roads are created with gestural strokes while long dark shadows contrast against a bright, white house and sun filled blue winter sky. Chinian's paintings evoke the work of the American Modernist painters like Edward Hopper. 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.
