Vincent Giarrano’s quietly engaging scenes of urban life are now on display at Haynes Galleries in Thomaston for the Fall. Giarrano sees the natural, simple narratives in scenes like a woman locking up her shop for the night or indulging in an afternoon nap and captures them on canvas. He describes his work as a combination of portrait and genre scenes, akin to Andrew Wyeth’s iconic work.
Vincent Giarrano paints what others might consider mundane, everyday events but treats them with such honesty and sincerity that they are transformed into timeless moments. Working in the Realist tradition, Vincent explores the softer and quieter moments of modern urban living. His figures are often seen enjoying a tranquil introspective moment, whether on the streets of New York City or in their own apartments. With a style reminiscent of Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth, Vincent attempts to tap into his subjects’ thoughts, feelings and personalities.
Haynes Galleries is now open through the Fall months on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11-4 p.m.
