Lon Brauer is an American artist known for his work in figure and Plein air landscape. Born in 1955 and coming of age in the early seventies, Lon has roots in the abstract expressionist movement. His work is a mix of the abstract with the representational bringing an impressionistic use of paint and materials to create images that challenge the viewer with new perspectives on the landscape genre.
“I had a long and successful career as a studio photographer before getting back into painting. That experience – working with photo images – has influenced my approach to painting. The camera is mechanical but the artist’s mind is fluid. I’m always looking to find new ways to interpret perceptions of the world around us.”
Lon shows his work both nationally and in the UK. He travels extensive each year with plein air events. Home is in Granite City, IL where he owns and operates Lon Brauer Studios.
