Patrick DeAngelis is an oil painter based in Southern California. His work explores light and color harmonies within vast atmospheric spaces. Born and raised in Northeast Ohio, DeAngelis studied painting under artist Fredrick Graff and earned an MFA at the New York Academy of Art in 2006. His early works, composed on large birch panels explore hazy mountain vistas revealed though thin oil glazes. In these early works, the viewer enters a vast color-field landscape painted to evoke a sense of stillness, calm and wonder.
Searching for new inspiration and an opportunity to mature his style, DeAngelis relocated to Southern California in 2019. The drive west made an immediate impression as the desert and ocean become leading subjects to explore light, color and space. From this relocation, a new palette emerged, along with a further step toward abstraction and additional sensitivity to light and color. His most recent work strips the landscape of shape, line, and texture, formal elements that help articulate representational identity, in turn revealing only color, tone, and a singular suggestive line. The intention is to create a purely visceral sensation, slightly detached from cognitive recognition and simple identification.
