James Doolin: Artificial landscape 6 image

Year: 1969

James Doolin (1932–2002) was an American painter and muralist best known for his saturated natural and urban southern California landscapes.

Los Angeles artist and writer Doug Harvey notes that his paintings allow us “to see the places we overlook every day and to recognize that, in spite of its ominous industrial overtones, the city is shot through with a luminous, electric vitality and a psychological potency verging on the mythic.” Described as a “master of color and composition,” his “evocative, moody paintings teemed with life.” Source: Wikipedia
