Jon Parlangeli

Jon Parlangeli

Born: 1969

Hometown: Bloomfield Hills

Based in: Bloomfield Hills

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 like a Jacques Cousteau dive special into the deepest reaches of my mind. Sadly, no sharks. The discoveries are constant, the sun is always shining, and the ocean is always beautifully blue. The rest is nature.
My work is held in multiple corporate and private collections throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

About my work:
I am an explorer at heart possessed with a need to look beyond traditions in style and question the unknown. Because of this the works are seeded in process painting and material discovery. Elements of drawing, textural curiosities and color/form relationships combine to create a unique aesthetic in each work. Depending on what is going on in the world at the time there will also be elements of nature and/or humanity in my work that mix about with abstracted components to create a sort of historic bibliophile in the paint…essentially a moment in time that reflects for a lifetime.

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.

I spend a lot of time in Northern Michigan walking fields, staring at foliage and sitting on the beaches of the Great Lakes.
