Derrick Breidenthal's (1971, Kansas City/USA) paintings are based on the romantic recall of nature combined with the reality of the natural condition. His use of abstraction tempered with realism emphasizes these contradictions. The mixture of severe space, light and color adapt to the balance of suggestion, enhance the perfection of a dream, as well as hold up to the roughness of reality. Derrick Breidenthal has exhibited his landscapes throughout the United States and abroad. Breidenthal’s paintings are part of several corporate and private collections.
