“True success is simply starting again, striving for something ineffable, unrealized and unimagined.”
New Hampshire painter James Aponovich imaginatively juxtaposes objects in ways that convey, through superb draftsmanship and sensitive use of color, the spirit and “inner beauty” of his subject matter.
His still-lives are often placed against a background landscape inspired by the Tuscany region of Italy which he visits every year. Notable for their simplicity, his work reduces objects to an essential quality of being. In a sense, he is a minimalist representational painter. Aponovich considers the clarity of air and the “sense of air” that permeates his canvases to be reminiscent of Renaissance painters such as Perugino.
In 2012 Aponovich made the commitment to paint a painting a week. The resulting body of work Abonovich52 was profiled in his blog and has been exhibited at the Clark Gallery and elsewhere.
Aponovich’s work is represented in numerous public and private collections including: the Art Institute of Chicago; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Chemical Bank; and the Portland Museum of Art. He has exhibited widely including a solo museum exhibit at the Currier Gallery of Art, Manchester, NH.
