Ellen Perantoni

Since childhood I have been enamored of the lyrical and majestic views portrayed in Hudson River School art.  Through indefatigable haunting of museums and later lessons with master painter Hong-Nian Zhang of the Woodstock School of Art, I developed my own fusion of styles.  I am listed in AskArt and have a BA from New York University.

My goal is art that employs realism as a gateway to the sublime.  My work, in which pristine nature stars, is a comfort and a guide.

For several years I painted the red rock country of Sedona, Arizona and in 2020 returned to the Hudson Valley, which I hike and drive in search of inspiring views.  I often eliminate man-made features from the scenes I paint, to revert to the natural state of things.

I am fascinated by transitions in the weather and time of day which can be so dramatic: a thunderstorm approaching on a summer afternoon, a sunset, the atmospheric change of seasons or from rivers to higher elevations in the Catskills.
