Landscape Paintings by Renato Muccillo
Renato Muccillo is a Professional Artist and Senior Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
Renato landscapes are often compared to those of Dutch masters and 19th-century English artists. This traditional approach acts to highlight and compliment the artist’s subject matter as Muccillo’s subject matter reminds us how frequently today’s landscape is affected and appropriated by man and industry. Mesmerized at first by the luxurious colors and near miraculous use of light, on closer inspection, the viewer notices the culvert, the pilings, the log booms, or the distant plume of smoke stacks. Even the farms that serve as subject matter for his paintings leave the viewer wondering if they are viable or abandoned as there is no sign of human life only the marks left behind by man and machine.
