The time I spend creating is a form of meditation and the pieces I create are evidence of time well spent in communion with my self. I have taken to playing in all sorts of mediums; from the rendering of the figure, to landscapes, abstractions in wood, stone and metal and most recently mosaics. I look forward to sharing them with you. (more…)
Just recently his artwork and home have come full circle in a journey of mind, body and spirit at the turn of this 21st Century. His City Nightscapes have gained national attention and recognition, designating him as the “premier nightscape painter in the United States”. From these images, painted primarily in Chicago, came the dayscape Gouache paintings of Chicago, Portland and other cities. Pijoan has also gained notoriety for his landscapes of scenic and culturally rich Northern New Mexico and Colorado. (more…)
Thru the mediative process of painting, I have become aware of the power of visual language. Therefore each painting is carefully constructed with the highest regard for the viewer as I step aside and allow spirit to come into beautiful form. The concept of each painting begins with the first layer of the painting. After which many layers of pigments are suspended in resin, oil and wax. Each new layer has a reflective, translucent quality allowing the underpainting to show thru while taking on a new discovery in its form. After applying (and removing) translucent and layers, a painting builds to a point of completion and is ready to be shared and viewed.
I believe in the power of beauty and hope you too will always experience beauty on your journey. (more…)
