Jeff Briggs' pointillist abstractions come across as impressionistic landscapes, or parts there of.
This image of "CHANGING WEATHER" 2008, (acrylic and oil on polyflax 30"x50") is from his Website where you'll find more intriguing works, but absolutely no information to inform you about his oeuvre.
He's represented by Carrie Haddad Gallery and they are also mum, except for this quote from their press release for their April/May Group Exhibit; Sacred Ground:
"Briggs’ approach to the landscape is markedly different from most contemporary landscape painters and one that intrigued gallery owner Carrie Haddad. “At first, Jeff’s paintings seem like a series of colorfields”, explains Haddad, “but then, one begins to feel grounded on the land, bathed in the magical light and color of its terrain.” In these recent works, Briggs has been increasingly interested in the idea of painting representing sound. “Through color and rhythm,” says Briggs, “I paint what can be described as a resonant hum. From Newton’s arbitrary division of the spectrum into seven parts to match a diatonic scale, to everyday descriptions of colors being described as loud or soft, synaesthetic language surrounds us. My paintings explore the idea of a sound/image. Notions of landscape simultaneously coalesce and dissolve. The accreted marks turn into something like background radiation in the galaxy. I think of them sometimes as soundscapes.”
