Country Life

Andrea Grimsley's avatar Andrea Grimsley Vote Code: 64738

This work is an interpretation of 7 of Van Gogh's paintings, depicting the pastoral beauty of the European countryside and the daily life of it's citizen's. This is my homage to one of history's most loved artists, whose style has endured for over 120 years and inspired generations to celebrate the beauty of rural life. The work employees the bold colors and thick impasto, that made his work unique in it's time, and gives the surface a visceral quality. The sense of place created by this compilation is one of warm light, solitude and contemplation. I believe this work would be a popular favorite with the general public while offering an educational opportunity for those who may not be familiar with his work.
