Biography from Leslie Levy Fine Art, Inc.:
Greg Skol paints small translucent landscapes, which he describes as "meditations on nature." He is most interested in capturing the beautiful colors that appear on the landscape, especially those which occur at twilight. Each oil painting is intended to be a quiet interpretation of perfect fields, mountains, rivers and valleys.

His paintings are generally small and often have an unusual square format. From a distance, the viewer can enjoy the general beauty and glow of a Greg Skol painting. On closer inspection, one can see the detail and unique surface of the work.

Skol artist is very interested in the way the light plays on the landscape and in creating an ethereal quality reflecting the stillness and beauty of nature.

Although Skol begins with a rough sketch and a few notes about the site, he relies on his memory to convey an evocation of the place. He is more interested in creating a "state of mind" and capturing a "feeling at a particular time" than depicting what one might see through the lens of a camera.

ARTIST STATEMENT
These landscape paintings are primarily meditations on nature. Although they begin with specific sites, they do not serve solely as descriptions of those sites. I leave the work open-ended in this way so as to allow the viewer to bring their own experience to the work. It is not transcription of place that my work is concerned with, it is evocation of place. It is in this way that the landscape becomes a visual representation of our internal world. The way that autumn light rakes across a field or the way that daybreak charges the atmosphere speak to something within us. The content of my work is found in those moments where internal and external worlds intersect: moments when we feel ourselves as part of the larger nature of the world. Greg Skol
