"Dusk", 2017, oil on canvas, 16" x 16"Debut of a unique body of elegant work evolved over the last decade which explores the plastic means of hand manipulated oil paint to display it’s most profound aspect, as a vehicle for poetic color. Artist Joe Vinson creates paintings that produce an aesthetic experience of color contrasts while following a minimalist design with a rigor in painterly execution.

Vinson has taught painting and drawing at The School of the Museum of Fine Art Boston, Drawing at Cooper Union. He and  his wife, Maddine Insalaco, jointly teach and lecture about early and contemporary landscape painting practices, and work with museums such as the Musee des Beaux Arts in Orleans, France, the Morgan Library in New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England to identify unknown and correct misattributed locations of works in these collections.
