Ileen is currently featured in our 2020 Spotlight Exhibit.
“I am a painter living in the glorious Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York. In my paintings I try to capture everything about a moment in time: the light, the feeling, the sense of space, the action, the stillness. My paintings are colorful and I presently work in oil. Although I have also used acrylic paints as well. My work is representational, yet I don’t strive for photorealism. In all of my paintings, whether they are still life, portraits, landscapes or cityscapes, I try to connect with the subject, so that by the time I am finished I feel like I have inhabited the scene. I hope the viewer does as well.”Ileen Kaplan
