Daniel Roemmelt’s oil paintings and portraits are vibrant and full of color. Roemmelt, who now hails from South Florida, taught in the Finger Lakes region of New York for many years.
Daniel Roemmelt gives his oil paintings a personality by creating faces, using colors and patterns to create drama. “Every portrait I paint provides me with the opportunity to create a work of art that exhibits both beauty and timelessness,” says Roemmelt. His inspiration is drawn from the art of the great academic masters, such as Rembrandt, Johannes Vermeer, John Singer Sargent, Ingres, and William Adolphe Bouguereau. Contemporary artists Chuck Close, Steve Penley, Kehinde Wiley, and Graydon Parrish continue to inspire him. His challenge, as an artist, is to live up to the standard of excellence they’ve established.
This exhibition is made possible with support from CORNING SPECTRA.
