How Gregory Allen Page Challenges the Model of Impressionist Art as a Contemporary Artist

Share This
Straight out of what feels and looks like the late 19th century comes artist Gregory Allen Page with a new take on the Impressionism art movement. Despite the fact that it was initially met with disdain and disapproval, Impressionism broke barriers in the history of art. And just like the period that he enlists to create his art, Page forges ahead adding new technique to enhance the now well-revered idea of Impressionist art. With inklings of the renowned Impressionists Renoir, Manet and Monet, the essence of Page’s art takes on an Impressionist tone with an essence of spirited modernity.

While many of the late Impressionists often painted landscapes and static scenes, in Page’s work, he utilizes the technique and style of the historic art period and furthermore amplifies it by capturing exuberant scenes of life, charging each one with vigor and dynamism. But it isn’t in his subjects alone that he infuses a sense of movement realism. In his rich and tangible brushwork, Page generates raw energy, in the movement he creates on a canvas.

After constructing a vast collection of paintings, Page has even merited a review that regarded him as “Van Goh-esque with a pulse.” In his painting titled “Cilia Flowers” this is more than evident. Page brings the scene of a landscape to life with vibrant colors and movement realism. Between his use of opulent hues of green and blue, Page animates the painting, capturing what feels like the languor of an evening sky and the breeze that blows below. The artist credits his creative freedom for his ability to condense real movement into a painting.
“The soul of the painter is in the freedom of his hand and the brush,” he says.
