About Jos Biviano
From an early age, Jos was fascinated by form, color and texture as well as natural events and how they shaped the history of humankind. His paintings glorify Nature and evoke the transcendental images celebrated by the nineteenth-century Hudson River and Luminist Schools of Art. Jos's landscape paintings are marked by forceful and dramatic displays of light & shadow, intense color, and Turner-like atmospheric effects. Jos's compositions push the viewer for an emotional response. With few instances, his work often depicts the land with no elements of human intervention Jos enjoys painting landscapes bathed in late afternoon sunlight when color harmonies are most pronounced. His love of landscape stems from having lived in many beautiful areas of the country, including many years in the desert Southwest, the Great Plains States, and most recently the Mid-Atlantic region. Although he works predominantly in oil, Jos also enjoys painting with gouache and other water-based media.
