About The Artist:

Jeff Fontaine is inspired by the beauty that comes as things age. His paintings on steel are inspired by crumbling signage, weathered box cars and deteriorating industrial sites. In order to capture this phenomenon, Fontaine induces a rapid aging process in his studio by applying water, acid and fire to his surfaces prior to any color. The resulting patina becomes the backdrop for his paintings that are carefully composed, with consideration for both the multiple steel panels that are quilted (via welding) together as well as the application of paint that is guided by color theory. Fontaine's choice of color is driven by what he encounters in urban areas daily, as well as by the reds and robin egg blues found in Japanese wood block prints. In addition to 19th century artists such as Hiroshige and Hokusai, Fontaine also cites Robert Rauschenberg as a major influence.

Jeff Fontaine lives and paints in Portland, Oregon.
