Emphasizing the Process: The Art of Timothy Innamorato

Timothy Innamorato is a Brooklyn-based painter who works in a thoughtful, sometimes surreal style, emphasizing the process and emotion of painting more than a specific visual outcome. The artist’s works are realistic, with an eye for softened blending and just enough detail to make a scene feel tangible.

I really like the way that Timothy’s painting style carries through his portfolio, in various subjects and series. The artist has a knack for maintaining a consistently recognizable personal style, something that can be difficult when painting figuratively or realistically. I like the way that the artist blend the hard lines of construction and architecture with his slightly soft painting style, creating a sense of dynamic movement.

Timothy’s surreal series really showcases the artist’s appreciation for the medium of painting itself. These works transcend any focus on specific subject matter and instead have a distinctly exuberant, experimental feeling to them.
