Awaiting Mr. Jefferson

Piece description from the artist

Awaiting Mr. Jefferson exemplifies river travel during the early years of the United States on the Spirit of New London, the Batteau that Thomas Jefferson owned. He was present during the first launching of the flat bottomed boats, or batteau as they are known, and became the popular, convenient way to travel and haul goods.

About Luis Lozano

Lynchburg, VA

In his paintings, Luis Lozano attempts to create an air of realism by sculpting the light that fills the empty space around an object. He believes that light is essential to creating an illusion in painting, taking inspiration from artists like "Johannes Vermeer":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes_Vermeer, "Caravaggio":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caravaggio, and "John Singer Sargent":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Singer_Sargent.

Luis studied at the La Jolla Academy of Advertising and Design in La Jolla, California. His work in the advertising and design has given him experience with storyboards, thumb sketches, layout, design, and composition, while also providing insight about the relationship between artist and audience.

Luis currently maintains a studio practice and gallery space in Lynchburg, Virginia.
