Based in southern Maine, artist Jarid del Deo finds inspiration and subject matter in his New England surroundings. Though he feels a connection to the tradition of representational picture-making, it’s the color and shape that most excite him. Of his process, he says: “I spend more time looking than painting. I am slow to decide what I am reacting to and I consider this observational relationship to be as important as the finished painting.”
