Mark Hosmer - The Movie House Diner - Oil on Panel - 24 Inches x 34 Inches - © All Rights Reserved

The term Chiaroscuro refers to an effect of contrasted light and shadow created by light falling unevenly or from a particular direction on a surface. The word describes the treatment of light and shade in drawing and painting.Las

 

Laguna Gallery is pleased to present the works or Mark Hosmer. Hosmer is a California based artist who works with oil paint to create narratives that explore desolation, romance, and mood. Through the use of light he explores extreme low-key and high-contrast lighting which forces the viewers to investigate what may be lurking in the shadows. His representational works explore streets, homes, churches, highways, and businesses. The images are devoid of people, but are filled with life.

 

 "A street may suggest movement or destination, but an empty street at 4a.m. suggests that there is nowhere to go nor reason to go there, so just be here, now. Be quiet and know that God is. Some of my pictures are just a pretty scene or an appreciation of a well-restored house. But most have an undercurrent of something not quite known or something lost. Not "meaning" or symbolism, but an invitation to look beneath the surface." - Hosmer.
