About

The paintings of Pacifica artist Jamey Brzezinski are large, door-sized (40”x72”) acrylic paintings on canvas depicting overhead views of well-manicured suburban California landscapes. Featuring pools and fountains surrounded by circles, arcs, stripes and rectangles of incisively rendered tile, concrete, slate, and terrazzo bathed in bright noonday sunlight, they combine elements of David Hockney’s vibrant California paradise with the complex geometry of Frank Stella.

Viewers who assume that drone photography informs these striking images from 2003-12 will be surprised to learn that they are entirely invented, predating the drone era. The 1977 genesis of the series was in fact Brzezinski's fascination with the textures and patterns of rock, water, and mud that he trudged through in a college parking lot.
