Jose Luis Nunez is a painter who enjoys conveying color and the
vibrations of light and shade. Color symbolizes life and radiant plenitude
in his paintings. Nunez often paints with oils and acrylics allowing for
thick layers of paint and the inclusion of tangible brush strokes.
He paints a broad range of topics that reflect his varied interests. The
fascination of the effects of light on the painting subjects is what
brought him to paint, making the presence of light and shade a leading
element in his work.
Whenever possible, Nunez prefers to work
directly from his subject. He goes out-of-doors to make plein air
paintings. When creating paintings in situ, he works on a smaller scale.
Sometimes these small paintings, along with accompanying photographs of
the site, become source material for his larger works, creating a layered
process that combines elements of experience, sketching, photography and
