About Joe Loria

Following the path of Stewart Davis, John Graham, Willem deKooning, Milton Avery, Grace Hartigan, and many other pioneers into color, emotion and expression through visual art. 

I make art, paintings, to tell stories in the only meaningful way I can, visual language. I am inspired by phrases, utterances, headlines, from newspapers, TV, magazines and songs. I begin with drawings, my collected memories, and connect the odd dots of people, places and things and build a painting.
I have a unique color sensibility and it is exploited here in my quest to explain my concept of reality, an American Art.
