Jesse Aldana
Los Angeles, California

Jesse’s scenes of Los Angeles capture the essence of the city with compelling accuracy. The artist’s landscapes, often set at dusk, convey the glowing natural beauty of the West Coast, but also the industrial sprawl of California’s largest city. The juxtaposition of concrete and beaches, streetlights and sunsets represents the constant tension between humans and nature. While many of the scenes appear picturesque at a glance, upon closer look the viewer sees the omnipresence of man. And yet, amid the expansive urban jungle, the magical rays of the sun manage to shine through.

This is many times more beautiful in reality than the website showed. I love it. Thank you.

Jesse Aldana 5/1/2017 | 12:28 AM

Hi Frank, Thanks so much! I don't have anything coming up on the gallery side, but I can definitely keep you posted if the occasion should arise. Thank you!

I'm sure I will be very satisfied with your work "Fontenoy". Any possibility you will exhibit your creations in a Los Angeles gallery soon?

Jesse Aldana 3/7/2017 | 2:07 PM

Thank you very much, Cara. You are far too kind, but I am thrilled that you are happy with the paintings. Carel Fabritius' little painting, "The Goldfinch" has long been a favorite of mine and continues to inspire my work in its balance between economy of means and depth of experience. Thank you for the support and sentiment. Cheers!

Thank you, Mr. Aldana, for the lush still lifes you painted. They were delivered last week, and I repainted a wall before hanging them. I look at them, mesmerized. When I explore the detail, I am reminded of Donna Tartt's description of the perfect still life in her book, The Goldfinch. Mille mercis.
