Japanese Seaside (View from a Train)

Piece description from the artist

The Japanese Seaside, as seen from a train. The post-impressionistic brushstrokes, wild & thick, are meant to show the fleeting motion of the perspective from the train. The only passive element to the piece is the cool blue green strip of ocean, dividing the wheat field from the sky. This piece is meant to bring to mind the idea of the rapid passage of time & our perception of it, tempered by the immovable forces of nature.

About Jonathan Jahnke

Metairie, LA

Jonathan Jahnke is a freelance painter, illustrator, and photographer living in New Orleans, Louisiana. In an abstract style, Jonathan distorts reality following the school of "post-impressionism.":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-Impressionism He is most interested in capturing the psychology behind a scene than the exact details. He uses dark, sketchy lines over bright, primary colors to simplify a piece down to its essence. Jonathan draws inspiration from the color, architecture, and character of life in New Orleans, as well as his travels through Europe and Asia.
