While Wandering

November 9-January 31, 2020

Contemporary painter Ricco DiStefano's vibrant panoramic paintings capture moments and movement in nature. His paintings evolve from memory and feeling, rather than seeing, as he attempts to simplify the complexities of nature and re-create the momentary magic in a given panorama. The result is often an expressive abstraction of nature, incorporating a feeling of movement or animation using shadows to represent a fleeting moment in time.
