The work of Louis Ebarb: A lifetime dedicated to the creative arts.


Street Dance

Street Dance

My perspective on city life.  Working, commuting, playing, shopping, walking or resting, the cities of the world reflect the our humanity.  I honor and elevate the often disregarded people, places and structures by depicting them with paint on canvas. The most substantial and oldest ongoing series, Street Dance includes images from my home town, New York City, and other urban centers that I have visited.

Sacré Bleu

Sacré Bleu

The English translation is Sacred Blue and at one time it was believed to have been the color of the robe worn by Mary, Mother of Christ.  It is said that it was adopted as the color of the sky which covers the earth as does Mary's blessing but in modern times has been misused as an faux French expliative by English speaking cartoon characters and comics.

My Sacre Blué Series started as a personal challange to explore the compositional potential of the highly charged Prussian and Phthalo Blue hues and continues as a favored method to expand my vision.

Travels

Travels

London, Havana, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Panama City, Boston, Rome, Paris, as well as Ebarb, Louisiana are just some of the places that I have had the pleasure to visit.  These are some of the drawings and paintings inspired by my journeys.

Plein Air

Plein Air

In the past five years my paintings have taken on a more Impressionistic look, using less continuous brushstrokes and a canvas-based blending of color.  In my Plein Air Series, I have embraced another Impressionistic approach by painting on location.  This is my attempt to capture the subtle qualities of light and air through direct observation.  Unlike the Impressionistic masters of the last century, who would paint outdoors in any conditions, I only paint Plein Air when the weather and location are comfortable and pleasant.

About Louis Ebarb

About Louis Ebarb

 

I create art because it is possible to achieve perfection.

I present the viewer with the world through my eyes and experience.

I paint my version of the sacred.

I learned to paint realistically through the study of abstraction.

I present the beauty of the commonplace and the often overlooked.

I make a  better world on all of my canvasses.

I anchor my work with the traditions of western composition.

I begin each painting knowing it will be my best.

I honor my Italian, Native American and Spanish ancestors through my work.

I don't take myself or my work too seriously.
