John Ross Palmer blends symbolic color, form and textures into an art form he describes as, "Escapism." Palmer transports the viewer within his reductive canvases, with the use of understated and abstract forms. Palmer's work depicts forms that hint at reference, but leave interpretation open to the viewer. "Studying in Florence under Philip Rubinov-Jacobson gave me the opportunity to open the door to more free forms in my work and add the flexibility to allow the viewer to be an integral part," states Palmer. Through this interaction between the loose forms, one may recall past experiences. His paintings depict a residue of memory with the power to transport the viewer back in time. Much like the work of Giacometti, Palmer uses organic expressionist marks that describe figures and interiors. Because of the clarity of these two things, the viewer can easily identify his or herself with the space. The space and form is basic and reduced. It is existential and somewhat bleak, but at the same time it seems peaceful and optimistic. Palmer's brushstrokes are large and generous, and his effortless manner of paint application produces a thick painterly texture. This texture builds to form a rich surface full of various lush marks. Palmer has studied at Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence under Master Philip Rubinov-Jacobson and Roberto Venosa in Cadaques, Spain. One of Palmers' focuses today is the ability to share his art in areas of deeper meaning. Texas Children's Hospital chose Palmer as their featured artist in 2003 to work with the children to create six canvases to be auctioned for local charities. Palmer has exhibited his artwork throughout the United States and Europe.
