Terence Netter - Promise Land

A renowned American painter and professor, Terence Netter was a former Jesuit priest who entered art with Abstract or Action paintings. By 2006, Netter had become a devotee and practitioner of Zen Meditation, which had a great influence on his practice. After moving to the farmhouse in the Loire Valley, France, the artist shifted to landscapes painted in a unique minimalist style.

Seeking peace in his heart and mind, Netter reflected this in his paintings as well. The work Promise Land from 2015 captures the special light of the region, offering a feeling of serenity. On the other hand, patterned details create a rhythm and quiet energy.
