Al Gury: Artist
Al paints figures, landscapes, still lifes and portraits.
As an artist Al strives to integrate a number of elements in his work: richness in the use paint and color, poetry and expression in the creation and choice of images of images, and strength in the technical execution and process of executing the paintings and drawings.
Al's influences come from both art history and the contemporary world: baroque figure painters such as Ribera and Zurburan have been important influences, along with tonalist and colorist landscape painters such as Inness and the Pennsylvania Impressionists. Contemporary observational painting is balanced by a strong sense conceptual and social content.
He was one of only five contemporary painters included in an important exhibition of the History of Pennsylvania Impressionism at the Woodmere Art Museum. For notifications about upcoming gallery shows, Join Al's Mailing List.
