Adriano Farinella

About The Artist

I approach studio work as a spiritual practice, creating meditative landscape paintings from memory and imagination.These invented landscapes use clouds as protagonists and symbols of impermanence while the land acts as an eternal counterbalance.

Rather than being a recording of a specific place at a particular time of day, the paintings refer to a metaphysical version of ‘a place in time’ and are intended to connect the viewer to broad contemplations that simultaneously transcend the temporal world and root into it.

Adriano lives and works in Easton, Pennsylvania. He teaches workshops that balance elemental skill building exercises with intuitive painting practices.
