Jade green and warm orange red hues are present in this vibrant and alive with rhythmic lines and color, oil on canvas from Stephen Henriques, who says, “Magnificent Color is my greatest gift”. A mid career California artist who has also spent much of his career painting in South America. He is influenced by Bonnard and Vuillard, and inspired by music — specifically jazz music that he listened to when the western art form was new. When referring to his canvases that glow with layered high noon color, the artist says they are to be experienced slowly, like music, eating food or dancing. Color reigns in Henriques' delightful compositions that are at once, balanced, harmonious and a toast to life.
