James Bohary

Bohary,-James_174

Painter James Bohary is most well-known for employing expressive brushwork, thick impasto, and sweeping gestural marks in his oil paintings. While his paintings are abstract and almost always non-objective, they draw influence and inspiration from nature-ranging from landscapes to seascapes to animal life. In his work, he also recalls his personal explorations of specific places, such as time in New York, Puerto Rico, and Newfoundland. Often, the richly colorful buildup of paint extends to the edges of the canvas, creating an almost topographical surface.
