  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) July 16, 2013 - American artist April Rimpo paints luminescent compositions in watercolors and fluid acrylics whose glowing hues and evocative textures are in sharp contrast to the softer tones typical of most watercolor paintings. Her transporting imagery renders scenes both familiar and distant - from American cityscapes to picturesque vistas in Europe or Latin America - in vivid, bright colors. Though her work is firmly rooted in realism, she also allows her paints to flow, meet, and meld, injecting elements of chance into her carefully and dynamically composed paintings.

    "I watch it flow and respond, allowing the piece to develop in directions not fully planned," Rimpo says of her method. "This is part of the thrill of working in watercolor that I didn't find in other media." She intrigues viewers by juxtaposing areas of near-abstract color with precisely outlined and filled in elements. This incredible variety of modes of application and imagery leaves her audience to complete the details of areas which have been washed over in seductive and dramatic hues, drawing them into the work.
