Piece description from the artist
A British country house, surrounded by the colors, motion, & life of the countryside. The house in the middle stands amidst the tempest of the wild, colorful brushwork & wavelike motion of the lines, & tries to remain calm & fixed in place.
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.
