Recent Landscapes

Since 2008 Jerry Calote has aspired to produce a contemporary style of landscape painting where evocation of mood plays a greater role in the art piece. The subtleties of color value are explored and monochromatic painting is advocated.  Simplicity of design is undertaken where previous surreal work was often constructed on a complex grid. The current focus is capturing the aesthetics and forms of nature through color and light representation and creating a progressive style of landscape.
