Touch The Rainbow, Touch The Stream
Oil on canvas: 48" x 36" x 1.5"
I was inspired by numerous painters and photographers for this painting. With that, I feel it is a collective piece, mixing different images I was gathering into an inner impression. This became my dreamscape with particular attention to the play of light. This painting continues beautifully, wrapping around the edges (gallery wrapped canvas) so that the artwork is visible from all angles. It is delivered ready to hang with hanging wire securely attached to the back canvas frame.

As Above So Below
 Oil on canvas: 53" x 67" x 1.5" inches
This is my largest piece to date. I started painting the upper canvas area depicting tree branches with some texture. Finishing this painting actually took a while before I felt it most appropriate to continue, as a reflection, the lower half with branching roots... Hence the title, "As Above So Below." This painting continues beautifully, wrapping around the edges (gallery wrapped canvas) so that the artwork is visible from all angles. It is delivered ready to hang with hanging wire securely attached to the back canvas frame.

Bio
Artist Statement
Born and raised on Long Island, New York, Joseph Leone is a Georgia based artist who works mostly in oils. He earned a degree in Environmental Design and Horticulture from the University of Georgia.

Joseph’s paintings reflect both deep introspection and spontaneity. An intuitive love of nature beautifully informs his use of composition, color, and light, through a process that allows and encourages an initial concept or inner impression to develop its own unprompted identity. As a result, Joseph’s paintings create a dreamlike, almost mystical vision, drawing the viewer into the paintings through their rich brushwork and texture. No one simply observes Joseph's art; one feels it. Through his work, Joseph hopes to share and communicate a sense of tranquility, joy, and wonder that transcends the obvious.

Joseph, who works primarily in oils and chalk pastels, sells his paintings privately and also accepts commissions. In addition to his visual artwork, Joseph is an accomplished musician and writer, composing both songs and poetry. Currently he performs his original music with world musicians from India and the Middle East.
My most recent series of paintings ("Inner Forms") explores my inner impressions of nature's beauty. Interpreted and displayed as a dreamlike expression or vision, these paintings capture the essence of an imagined, seen, or remembered visual space. In these visionary paintings, I hope to convey a sense of tranquility, joy, and wonder that transcends the obvious.

I love painting with oils because of their rich color and sensuousness texture. As I paint, the slowness and variety of the oils' drying times encourage me to think and react in a more deliberate and thoughtful way. The paintings and I grow together, allowing consideration for plenty of spontaneity. Through this organic process, my paintings take on a life of their own, almost directing my next intuitive stroke of the brush. Sometimes with dabs of paint and at other times with bold brush strokes, I often blend colors and textures directly on the canvas. The result that I am striving for is to create something intriguing to examine on every inch of the canvas. At times I will finish a piece with fine details to accentuate particular areas of the artwork. This richness of detail allows the paintings to continue to reveal themselves over time.

I am a musician as well as a painter. Interestingly, my process of composing music and painting is quite similar. No matter the genre, from classical to world music scales, my goal has always been to create something unique and intriguing. I often blend different musical styles and influences, striving to reach an "in the moment" creative space. With music, I can best describe this process as hearing the next melody or progression in my head. It is this intuitive, creative mélange of the visionary process that I have attempted to convey in this exhibit, "Inner Forms."
