Western landscape painting


G Russell Case

Western painter G. Russell Case is inspired by nature, but he places little value on literal translations.  His sweeping, idealized versions of the western landscape are compositions that combine the beauty of the natural world with the rich imagination and originality of an artist’s mind.  While there is an unmistakable honesty present in his painted environments — stemming from his engagement with the land painted directly from nature — viewers may be reminded of other great artists of the west, whose work is marked by distinctive artistic philosophies.  Case’s work is unfettered by philosophy and intellect, though he is surely a student of his artistic forebears.
