The breathtaking shorelines of Maui combined with the fascinating world of art introduces us to an individual like no other - with his inspiration deriving from the late 19th century, fine artist Gregory Allen Page is a breath of fresh air in the fine art industry.
Although there is a resemblance between his art and historic works of iconic French Impressionists, Page’s work magnifies the definition of impressionism. While his art maintains the essence of realism as seen in the works of great artists like Monet, Manet, Renoir, Page’s art comes pulsing with a modern and exuberant sense of life.
Page’s work has even been described as “Van Goh-esque with a pulse,” in Page’s paintings, the energy between the brush strokes of his work is unbelievably realistic. With stunningly bright colors and detailed strokes, his style of painting not only illustrates life as it really is, but further exceeds the essences of realism - bringing the painting into an enhanced existence of liveliness.
For example, in his piece titled “Old San Juan Puerto Rico,” Page perfectly captures a picturesque scene of the city’s landscape and architecture — part of the stunning town’s skyline overlooking the ravishing Caribbean Sea. In the details of the painting exists the soul of Old San Juan. Page brings the scene to life with an explosion of vibrancy and warmth, so much so that one can nearly smell the salty air of the ocean and feel the warm rays of the sun beaming on the town below it. The historic Old San Juan neighborhood has blue cobblestones and Page's painting invites you to remember a stroll of discovery in the historic Caribbean port.
His work is not just about feeling or energy though. In fact, Page is full of knowledge when it comes to the scientific understanding of light and color. Because of this - he is able to completely awaken a painting into vivid reality with genuine energy and tangibility. Page himself has even been adamant about the essence of oil painting and how it should not be compared to photography.
“The soul of the painter is in the freedom of his hand and the brush.”
