About Jeremy Lipking

Jeremy Lipking works in the tradition of late 19th-century American masters such as John Singer Sargent. Lipking’s subjects include portraiture, landscape, and the female nude, all painted in a realist vein. Through his careful balance of tones and hues, he creates striking psychological moods, veering toward notions of the sublime in landscapes, while his portraits and nudes evoke complex psychodramas rooted in agony, contemplation, and intimacy. Lipking achieves these effects through the technical mastery of his medium, manipulating the lustrous qualities of oil paint into hyperrealist depictions of people and places, many of them located in the western United States.
