“In my oil paintings, I explore certain evocative states created by the energy and expression of painted images. A narrative element is also evident. The balance of enigma and meaning in my work reflect my philosophy of life. In considering the human scene, I remind students that the making of a painting is a journey that remembers others we have taken.”
In John’s case that includes an English Lit degree from Villanova, and graduating from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts’ four-year Certificate program. In addition to painting, he has had plays produced and is an active poet and essayist.
