Nebraska artist Stephen Dinsmore’s work is allied to the mystery and alchemical nature of painting. His paintings evoke a love of light, color, ennui and connection to land and object. The subjects of Mr. Dinsmore’s work include landscape, still life, and “things for which I have great fondness.” The paintings are expressionistic in spirit with nuanced and subtle balances of color and light. There is a lively and sensuous handling of paint in the work – a love of materials. Dinsmore says that, “I search for subjects or a visual find that I just can’t leave behind. Some condition in nature or subject grabs hold and I have no choice but to try to paint it. Happening upon such circumstances are such gifts – moments of grace.” His paintings are meant to be seen over time. There is a quiet depth to the work that reveals itself with repeated viewing.
