Paul Pinzarrone
Pinzarrone’s work went from photography & paintings of photo-realistic science fiction to abstracted futuristic landscapes & machines. He preferred textureless, very smooth surfaces and began working with airbrushes, spraying acrylic lacquers on the back side of clear plexiglas. He preferred hinting at realism by executing finely detailed images of things and places that we have not seen but think we might have. To be “art”, it had to be New. Why do another traditional landscape like the masters have been doing for centuries, with the same tools that the masters used in the 16th century. Pinzarrone’s imagery needed to be new or a new twist, a new approach. Often he would finish a piece, assess it and from what conversation he had with it, he would start the next piece, much like automobile designs would change each production model from year to year.
