Artist Statement

John PacovskyJohn Pacovsky

I paint concepts.
It’s not just a cyclist sharing the road with taxis in Manhattan’s Theatre District, it’s “Leader of the Pack”.

It’s not just chess pieces on a piano keyboard, it’s “War and Peace.”

"Loyalty" asks the viewer to consider the differences between the tree and the rock, to consider the concept of loyalty in relationships.

I have always considered myself a philosopher who paints. Relying heavily on the techniques of the Old Masters, I choose subjects that embody truths, often humorously - sometimes surrealistically. The joy for me is in creating beautiful paintings that spur thoughtful consideration. I love people, feel connected to the world and spend my days sharing my unique vision of it through paintings. In my mid-sixties, I cannot escape the feeling of just beginning.
