Apparition – oil painting by Linda Jo Nazarenus
Linda Jo Nazarenus – Apparition
Oil on panel, 18 x 15 inches, framed to 25.25 x 19.25 inches
“Apparition” depicts a mourning dove perched on a branch, overlooking a field of ochre colored grasses and rolling hills. Brooding skies with swirling clouds linger in the background. The bird is hyper-realistically rendered, with acute attention paid to its feathers and patterning. The piece features a palette of brown, black, cream white, ochre, yellow, and gray.
Linda Jo Nazarenus creates richly detailed paintings depicting vast, untouched terrain, and the wildlife that inhabits them. Her technique is influenced by Northern European masters of the Renaissance, which entails layering many thin oil glazes on panel or paper to achieve a high level of detail. Richly rendered surfaces convey sensations of velvety fur, sun-bleached stone, and native foliage. The artist’s treatment of the landscape infuses familiar features of the land with otherworldly qualities and a psychological weightiness, which suggest both the wonder and unknowability of the natural world.
