WELCOME TO THE ART OF
A Multichromatic Artist
Living and painting within the narrow confines of a forty foot sailboat has inspired Winslow Furber to create artwork that reflects his nearly constant interactions with his surrounding environment. In 2018, after a lifetime of monochromatic work in charcoal, ink and graphite, Furber developed a style that incorporates the scale, value and perspective required for realistic sketching with acrylic paints, thus exponentially expanding the vibrancy of his artwork.
Using only primary paint colors, Win mixes his own palette to create subtle changes within a format of large, bold color surfaces. The resulting paintings are neither abstract nor realist, but landscapes and seascapes with a clean contemporary feel. The primary focus of his work is often the more mundane objects in the surroundings, such as trees or navigational buoys, with the more spectacular portions of the landscape to be left peeking from behind some obstruction. Thus his multi-layered paintings draw the viewer by stages into the depths of the piece.
