JOHN BRITTON

Autumnal Equinox: Moments in Repose
October 1 – October 21, 2021
Reception: Thursday, October 7, 2021 6-8 PM

John Britton is a classically trained oil painter based in New York City and Montauk. He received formal instruction at the Florence Academy of Art and Grand Central Atelier, studying with leaders of contemporary figurative art. With a strong foundation in European Renaissance art, French atelier painting, and Impressionism, Britton prefers to work en plein air, deeply immersed in natural settings.

Although he employs the techniques of the Old Masters, he seeks to push the artistic dialogue forward, exploring ways in which our hyper-connected society can find meaning in the meditative rhythms of figurative art. He attempts to tie the historic traditions of Western art into the contemporary world in a way that feels novel and fresh, establishing a connection which transcends the two-dimensional plane. More recently, he developed a series of paintings investigating the spiritual connections between classical portraiture and the intricate pattern motifs that are common to many religious traditions. In his quest for pathos and beauty, he hopes to inspire awe and contemplation within the viewer, even if just for a brief moment.
