Holding Onto Mother Earth

by Rick Seguso

oil on 1/4 inch masonite hardboard. Comes with or without frame.A study of contrast - the strength that the tree evokes holding onto the earth like the grip of a hand. And the softness of the moss clinging to that tree all within the solitude and quiet of the deep forest.

Equine art, floral, landscapes and portraits are a big part of Seguso’s work but at the heart of Seguso’s eclectic subject matter are his moody and evocative portraits of musicians. With confident and authoritative brushwork, special emphasis is placed on each character’s distinct and individual nature, capturing these images in bold and realistic paintings.Inspired and influenced by the Old Masters and Post-Impressionists, Seguso’s technique is under-painting in grisaille, and most of his works include varying degrees of glazing, “a technique, often overlooked by modern day artists but an invaluable tool in creating jewel=like depth and style that is impossible to achieve by just mixing paint”, Seguso says.Seguso’s colorful past includes working for legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen as his Road Manager and confidant in the mid 1970’s. He played a pivotal role in the musician’s rise to stardom. Seguso also has also released 2 CD's of original music.
