Vincent Crotty is an Irish-born artist living in Boston since 1990. Regarded for his landscape and figurative paintings, Vincent explores the places and faces of both Atlantic coasts as his primary subject matter. Working with oils, he paints with rugged textures and vigorous brushstrokes, balanced by sensitive color. His paintings reveal a remarkable understanding of light, and with this ability, Vincent transforms everyday subject matter into images that are memorable and moving.
Painting from life as often as he can, Vincent’s plein air approach creates a feeling of spontaneity and ease in his work. With a style that is loose and fresh, cheerful and evocative, he expresses a highly individual vision in contemporary representational painting.
