Douglas Flanders & Associates is pleased to present the bold, powerful paintings of Jerome Tupa. Large centralized iconic shape and line compositions in bold colors express a fascinating look into his spiritual world. The paintings in this exhibit were created from years spent near the Mediterranean Sea. Thus, the paintings express landscape forms of sun, sea and earth.
Tupa explains “Exploiting artistic materials led me to spend years using a variety of paint to express spiritual and philosophical ideas. Like all the series I have created over the past decades, the work is always a relationship between the deep inner earthiness rising to a bright glow of color.”
A native of North Dakota, Father Jerome Tupa is a modern day version of a Renaissance man.
