Excerpt from the site:
Trompe l'Oeil paintings have long commanded the interest of keen collectors everywhere. When you stand before a painting that you know is a flat surface (and yet your eye tells you it is three-dimensional) a state of perplexity exists until the mystery is solved. Once one comprehends the trickery, you salute the artist and celebrate his/her artful guile.
As a gallery, we are paricularly fond of the trompe L'Oeil genre. As a result, our artists constanly hone their skills and reach a bit further. New artists are drawn to us and these shows always feature first time presenters at John Pence.
These paintings represent a high degree of drawing skill, a comprehensive understanding of light and shadow, and a sophisticated ability to paint airy space; the subtle quality that distinguishes the exceptional painter from others.
