The meditative mood of color permeates the paintings of Dick McEvoy, now on view at Cathryn’s Tuscan Grille, 91 Main St., Cold Spring.
“I love to paint because I only paint what moves and excites me at a particular point in time. My art is not ‘reporting’ and it’s not ‘interpreting’ … it is simply my expression of pleasure,” McEvoy said.
That pleasure continues to the viewer through a swirling, kinetic melding of form suggestive of the landscapes portrayed. McEvoy is a man who although influenced by abstract impressionists, commands the stage of his own creations on canvas and paper.
Accomplished and in over 200 collections throughout Europe and the U.S., he is a signature artist member of Pastel Society of America, the Connecticut Pastel Society and the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod. He also is adept in oils. McEvoy currently resides in Connecticut. The exhibition continues until Dec. 9, at Cathryn’s.
