Jon Parlangeli

Jon Parlangeli

Born: 1969

Hometown: Bloomfield Hills

Based in: Bloomfield Hills

I'm always pushing forward and engaging different perspectives. To me there is no other path but to constantly ask and then answer questions via different modalities. This leads to new explorative bodies of work with differing styles, genres or techniques that in turn keep that beautiful yet highly annoying crazy out instead of in!

My story is easy enough to tell…I’ve been creating since childhood driven by a need for order amongst disorder, new harmonies amongst objects, visually seduced by repetition, pattern, and color and onward the dance goes. At some point around the age of 15 or 16 a rather observant art teacher stepped in and put me on the path from wayward youth to wayward artist. From there it’s been an epicurean vacation of creation kind of like a Jacques Cousteau dive special into the deepest reaches of my mind. Sadly, no sharks.

Regarding the work...I am a colorist, an explorer, possessed with a need to look beyond traditions in style and question unknowns in the physical and metaphysical. Because of this my works are seeded in process painting and material discovery where elements of drawing and textural curiosities combine with color/form relationships to create a unique aesthetic. Amuse-bouche elements of nature and humanity combine and proliferate the subject. They mix about with abstracted components to create a visual bibliophile in the paint that hints of stories yet to be written.

My work is held in multiple corporate and private collections throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

More About Jon Parlangeli

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Life, Mother Nature, the beauty of my medium

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I mostly photograph my locations instead of painting plen-air. That allows me to hone my compositions over time. From there it is initial drawing to focus the surface area and then...I let go. The studio session devolves into a fury of mark making and energy release via color and stroke. I also tend to flip the brush as I paint and use the pointed end as a stylus literally carving my visual language through the paint . This creates movement and truth within the work, it brings life . After, I'm exhausted at require wine and cigars.
