Don Resnick is one of a handful of significant painters who continue to devote their talents to portraying the American landscape. He insisted that his work was not simply depictions of nature but more so his reaction to it. His playfulness with light and the position of the sun gives his paintings a distinct life and emotion.
In his paintings Resnick reveals that selective vision, born of a long and observant familiarity with his themes of sun and sea, amounts to what may be described as a creative instinct. He believes the role of the artist is to take his/her theme, no matter how ordinary, and allow us to see it anew. What do you see?
