The mezzotints and pastels by New York artist, Peter Jogo capture the silence and stillness possible in both rural and urban landscapes. With masterful use of the subtle tones, only possible with mezzotint, played against strong silhouettes and deep shadows, the artist develops evocative nocturnal settings. The soft, ethereal quality of the black and white provides a foundation on which the artist builds his multi-plate color mezzotints, allowing for a particular richness, depth and texture in the landscapes of rolling fields and open skies. The softness of his larger chalk pastels is a natural evolution from the mezzotint surface. Whether in the city or the country, Jogo's landscapes create inviting spaces for pause and reflection.
