Spring Art Show
John Kneapler is a gestural abstract landscape painter working in watercolors and acrylics. His striking and unique color combinations are defined by his powerful brush strokes and his keen sense of fluidity. His motifs are informed by his experiences with nature, and the dynamism of life. Changing weather, city harbours, big blue skies, clouds, or the sea and ocean, permeate the underlying structures of his abstract compositions. This Spring Art Show will be a collection of various painting on these themes with works created from 2004 to 2019.
