Roy Germon’s landscapes convey a peaceful mood and the essence of a beautiful natural landscape but it is all about the paint. His paintings are a celebration of color and texture. He revels in the paints richness, in mark-making, and the sheer craftsmanship of working with a variety of materials “I paint landscapes that point in the direction of abstraction because they are primarily about painting,” he says.
Germon grew up in northwestern Connecticut. He earned his BFA in illustration and painting in l990 from the School of Visual Art in New York City. In addition, he worked as a freelance illustrator and his illustrations were published nationally in magazines, books and newspapers.
