Jeffrey Fay


Jeffrey Hutchinson Fay has concentrated his career on oil painting, while developing skills in other traditional mediums such as etching and charcoal, and he is a graduate of The Acorn Gallery School of Art in Marblehead, Massachusetts. After a trip to France, he fell in love with the history of the landscape. Since then he has shifted his landscapes to views of the city, and towns of New England.

In Through the Gate

 

 
Summer begins to slip away as a long shadow begins to intrude on this typical New England home in his childhood town of Marblehead. Jeffrey has been depicting New England Towns for a number of years.  While some of these scenes are of specific locations, others such as his gas stations are transient places with similar sentiment to that of an Edward Hopper painting.

Jeffrey works in a variety of traditional art mediums, but recently received a large format printing press as a gift from a former professor.  He has used this as an opportunity to strengthen his etching techniques and experiment with woodblock printing.  His use of texture against the bold shadow overtaking the house has brought air into a characteristically “flat” medium, and no doubt because of his experience in charcoal and oil painting.  This print was hand carved, and printed by the artist with oil based inks on Stonehenge printing paper with a limited edition of 20 prints.
This print was featured February 2017, and can be purchased framed or unframed on our gallery page.
