Jarvis Wilcox is an artist of his times – his themes characterize his view of our world. In a curious transmutation Life is strongly felt to resemble art. His approach converts the commonplace into occasions for contemplation.
Sensitive to Nature, Jarvis captures on canvas the imagery of county scenes many of which are near his East Hampton home. His direct observation of the subject are transcended by expressive coloration – dense, dark shadows ‘neath an arched roof, a sunlit path, grass, potato fields in bloom, flowers lavishly painted against the rough texture of a wooden fence – special brush strokes varied and blending, combined with a juxtaposition of colors convey the rich effect of varied lighting.
Jarvis Wilcox takes possession of all his subjects, uniting the psychological and the aesthetic, revealing his absorption. His search for just the right elements to cast a new light on obvious themes suddenly quilts the mind with new awareness making the moment memorable. From sunny street to seascape, a snowstorm and blooming forsythia, Jarvis Wilcox interprets in the most humanistic tone.
