Aerosol Spray Paint and Acrylic
PC is a Landscape artist based out of Southwest Cortez, Colorado. His work focuses on the local landscapes using very bold, bright, blended colors found in aerosol spray paint and acrylics layered on a stretched canvas.
His style is influenced by impressionism, fauvism, and semi-abstraction, and even included the presence of graffiti street art in our contemporary viewscape today. Although PC primarily used colored pencils, charcoal and even oils in his earlier works, about 2016 he began to experiment with spray paints and stencils on stretched canvas. The mediums became the basic technique and material he uses to render these very interesting contemporary landscapes.
His regional subject matter ranges as far west in the Utah rock country of Bluff and Mexican Hat to rural Colorado power-lined dirt roads, old barns and grain elevators, cemeteries, and views of the La Plata and the Sleeping Ute Mountain ranges. Also subjects close to artist heart, as diverse as the Ventura Pier in California, to places like Ouray, Telluride and Ice Lake, Colorado for the special association they have to significant moments in his Life.
