THIS GUY IS AWESOME
I have been to see John's gallery/studio/mad scientist's lab in Salem, and let me tell you, this is an experience like no other. John really knows his stuff. Ask him about any of his paintings -- especially the ones of marsh hay, or his two daughters -- and he'll talk your ear off (in the most delightful way possible). There is, admittedly, a stillness to his work, but his is a sentimental stillness, as though he is aware that his paintings capture a time that is long past (and not coming back any time soon, we can assume). Nonetheless, his paintings make me long for the days before portable music and wi-fi internet access. His work idealizes the simple, rustic nature of earlier days.
The exceptions to this rule, I would say, are the underwater scenes. If there aren't any in plain view, ask about them. If his fishing, boating and marsh maritime scenes are his ego, then these wild underwater scenes are undoubtedly his id. Filled with strange, vibrant, otherwordly creatures, these paintings can only be the workings of a vivid, thriving subconscious. If the surface is too tame for you, ask for something a little deeper. Either way, you won't be disappointed.
