Biography from Millbrook Antiques Mall:
After a career on Wall Street, I decided in 2001 to pursue a career as an artist. My main interest as a painter is to create an image where color sense and brush stroke are ascendant.

My experience in the outdoors is integral to my painting. I like to paint outdoors and I paint wherever I may travel. I like the light in my adoptive Italy. I like the skies in my native New York. Whether painting fig trees and olive groves in Umbria or open fields at Indian Ladder Farm in upstate NY, I am overwhelmed by the desire to construct a landscape and capture the emotional pull the surroundings have on me.

I will return often to the scenery I am painting until the painting is completed. --- A year later or two years later even so that I may see the same place again and paint iat at the same exact time of year. I know the sky will be the same deep purple. I know the trees will have the same leaves, I know the horses will be grazing as they did when I was there last. When a painting is unfinished it gives me reason to return to a favorite place and to anticipate another beautiful day.

When I paint, I dive in my work unaware of what I will be creating. I engage the canvas with no image in mind--then it gradually emerges and slowly, I find it. This makes painting fun and the result is mostly rewarding. I look for an image where color sense, brush stroke, and an emotional response are paramount. As an artist, I place less attention to the exact rendering of the objects in the composition--But there are also times when I have a picture in my mind I would like to create, in this case I will have considered more the outcome I had hoped to achieve.

I share great appreciation for the masterpieces by these artists;
Titian, Caravaggio, Velasquez, Manet, Cesanne, Matisse, Morandi, Dickenson and Wolf Kahn.

Biography from Chisholm Gallery:

John Jay Gebhardt is a New York City painter, artist.  His subjects are the still life and the landscapes of his native region of New York and of Italy.

After a 20 year career on Wall Street, John Jay Gebhardt decided to pursue a career as an artist.  His main interest is to create an image where color sense and brush stroke are ascendant.

Artists Statement
I like to paint outdoors.  I paint wherever I may travel.  I especially like the light in Italy.  Painting fig trees and olive groves, or an open field at Indian Ladder Farm in upstate New York, the desire to paint a landscape and somehow capture the emotional pull the surroundings have on me is constant.  I return often to the scenery I am painting until the painting is finished.  Sometimes I will return a year or two later, so that I may see it again and paint it during the same time of year.  I know the sky is likely to be the same color, deep purple, for example, or that the trees will have the same amount of leaves on them, or that the horses are likely to be grazing.  If a painting is yet to be finished it gives me reason to return to a favorite place and to anticipate another beautiful day.  My experience in the outdoors is integral to the painting itself.

Essentially, I use two fundamental approaches in my artwork.  Sometimes I approach painting within a plan.  Other times I just dive in not knowing the image that will result.  Both approaches put into play a dynamic with a favorable outcome.  With intended consequences in mind the image has been considered and thought through regarding color, balance, tension, etc.

In the other approach, when engaging the canvas, the image is not known yet.  Eventually it is found as it emerges.  Always my main interest is a good image where color sense, brush stroke, and an emotional response are ascendant.

Influences
I share with many others great appreciation for the masterpieces by these artists:   Titian, Carravaggio, Velasquez, Van Gogh, Manet, Cezanne, Matisse, Marquet, Morandi, Dickenson and Kahn.
