GERRY DEFRIES

Elixir of Nature
May 20 – June 9, 2016
Reception: Thursday, May 26, 2016 6-8 PM

Gerry Defries' acrylic landscapes have the grandeur of oil and the intimacy of watercolor. Defries paints middle-distance perspectives, often of bodies of water, almost always with sunny skies. His palette comprises hundreds of glowing colors that are saturated but not unrealistic. Though atmospherically idealized, the landscapes are depicted believably and naturally.

Defries paints both real places and non-specific vistas that could be entirely dreamed up, either by himself or by his viewers. He names many of his pieces after their geographical locations - the countryside in England, a city bridge in Paris, or a beach in Scotland. These views are faithful in their details and lovely in their idiosyncrasies. On the other hand, sometimes his work steps back and is able to cloak itself in mystery. His seascapes, with their towering waves and swirls of color, are a perfect blend of nature photography and Romantic painting. 

Defries was born in London, England, where he continues to live and work today. In the past year, he has been featured in several galleries in England, Milan, Barcelona, and New York, as well as on Channel 5 News in the United Kingdom.
