NOVEMBER 4: 6:00-8:00 PM: Diego Larguia
Larguia, a New Orleans artist, was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He moved to the States in 1991, and studied art in Florida and then with Don Anderson, Jerome Weinberger and Phil Sandusky at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts. He is now a faculty member there, teaching oil painting and watercolor for over ten years. His painterly realist landscapes are done en plein air around the neighborhoods of the city, with a fondness for the Holy Cross neighborhood where he now lives.
Influenced by such diverse masters as Sorolla, Sargent and Monet, he says his objective is to capture that specific point in time and place, just as it is presented to him, communicating his perspective. His compositions are filled with light and air with solid underlying draftsmanship. Known for his landscape and street compositions, he is equally proficient in still life and portraiture.
His current show New Orleans Vignettes shows the new direction for his oil painting. The style is dramatic with a pronounced use of black for shadows and heavy impasto.
