“My paintings are a reflection of my visions and dreams of beautiful scenery.” – Mario Jung
Lake Tahoe boasts unrivaled natural landscapes so charming that it attracts visitors from around the world. Thus, it is only fitting that Mario Jung paintings find a home in Marcus Ashley Gallery, one of the district’s finest art showrooms. The spectacular pieces by the Korean artist add a pop of dazzling colors to the plain walls of modern homes, fine dining restaurants, and classy hotels.
Colors of the Wind is the dreamy illustration of a crimson umbrella pine tree dominating a manicured field of purple, blue, and green blooms. Bright and cheery sunflowers vie for attention in the foreground, while tall and narrow evergreen cypress trees hold the fort in the background. Lush bushes in pink, lilac, and jade occasionally dot the scenery to lend balance to the artist’s trademark vibrant pigments. This impasto piece is richly textured in unmistakably Mario Jung dramatic brushstrokes. Patiently rendered in layer upon layer of oil paint, it comes across as lifelike with a three-dimensional quality.
