With the ability to convey atmosphere, emotion and weather in his cityscapes, Jeremy Mann possesses an exceptional talent which is evident in his work. Whether it’s using light and dark blues to portray the mystery of a city in the night, shades of grey to capture the stunning scenes of overcast evenings where cabs are the only sign of life, or an array of colours to show rain pouring down on the abandoned footpaths of a business district during the cold peak of the winter months, Mann brilliantly translates the essence of the intriguing, unconventional romance of stormy city weather into captivating scenes upon his canvasses.
In order to paint the scenes of the San Francisco based artist’s work, several techniques are involved. Surface staining, the use of solvents to eradicate undesired paint, and prominent marks created from the use of an ink brayer all help to produce the mystifying paintings of the enticing cityscapes. Jeremy Mann also pays an extraordinary amount of attention to detail, be it small lights intertwined throughout the city, or the reflections of the rain-covered roads and the scenes that surround them.
The combination of these aspects creates visually pleasing settings which allow viewers to temporarily get lost in the allure of the rainy days and nights as envisioned by the artist.
