James Penfield | Saint Paul, MN

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, and currently living in Minneapolis, Penfield paints abstract landscapes. Drawn to graphic elements found in any environment, whether natural or synthetic, Penfield's eye combs through layers of extraneous visual information to reveal harmonies and compositions using these elements, usually photographing an area of interest first, then painting afterward. He uses color mostly as a constructive element to push and pull space based on depth necessary to create a sense of instability or rhythm with light, as it reveals form.
