Piece description from the artist
Late in the afternoon, just before the sun dips behind the shadowing tree line at Bridgewater Marina at Smith Mountain Lake in central Virginia, the water takes on an exhilarating, rich vibrancy of lemon and lime! The stunning glow is accented by the lapping waves and shimmering reflections dancing on the boats hovering just a few feet above in dry-dock.
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.
