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 memory.
