What do art critics and art curators say about his paintings...
'Van Goghesque with a pulse'
' The rich brushwork and color found in his paintings meld well with his subject matter, focusing on spirituality, love, and beautiful life experiences.'
' Correspondingly, Page's works are raw and personal, with an expressive impasto application of paint.'
'Oil painting is not photography,Page states, 'The soul of the painter is in the freedom of his hand and the brush.'
'Capturing the contradiction of the material and the ethereal,'
'Page says he's been inspired by Impressionism, but he has also inherited Egon Schiele's eye for the body and its contortions, coupled with a pop art social critique. He uses color with unconventional daring, and his subjects, whether friends, archetypes or movie stars, are recognizable to us, but they have also been transformed by this artist's vision of his own unique worlds'
'A freeing of the mind and soul, to let the paint and paintbrush create an image of what is seen and unseen.'
' Page combines social commentary with an artistic confession of spirituality. His female nudes hearken back to classical figures, while they are also portrayed with strikingly contemporary shades and coloring.'
'Chicago Impressionism is a infusion of pop culture and Chicago lifestyle into the impressionistic style of Cezanne, Renoir, Van Gogh, Monet and Degas.'
'Vibrant color and broad stroked that give the viewer a sense of realism that transports the world of the viewer as Page sees it.'
' look deep into the understanding of the oil paint brushstrokes and the viewer find the paintings are not just a spiritual expression but also a comment on pop culture.'
Page states, The only thing that matters is what you create and how it interacts with others. Creating frees the soul.'
Page often quotes Voltaire, 'The soul of the painter is in the freedom of his brush.' Page believes a painting that looks like a photograph is missing something and boring, it is missing the soul of the painter.
Page lives and works on the shores and beaches of Lake Michigan, near Chicago. Collectors Limited Edition signed and enhanced prints available at www.chicagoimpresionism.com
A painting is a communication, like a sentence or statement, about a subject. The paintings elements can be complex or simple. In its simple form a painting can convey beauty. In a complex form, a painting can make a comment on popular culture or document something historically. Many of my paintings make bold comments or capture pop culture. This comes from my school of painting ‚ÄúChicago Impressionism‚Ě. My school was formed by thousands of hours of direct study of the art at the Chicago Art Institute. A comprehensive analysis of the sketch books of Renoir, Seurat, Sargent, Monet. My school is the independent study of art itself--a study of the beauty of the Chicago Art Institute.
