Gene Costanza is a contemporary realist painter who prefers the "painterly" application of oils. He focuses his efforts primarily on landscape and man's interaction with nature. Equally at home painting "en plein air" as well as in the studio, Costanza orchestrates paintings that engage the viewer, asking them to enter the subject, tarry and experience those common human responses evoked by a sensitive and intuitive painting.
Costanza is a member of the American Impressionist Society, California Art Club, Oil Painters of America, and the Plein Air Painters of Lane County. He has participated in numerous exhibitions and plein air events across the country, earning acclaim at many of them. His art is featured in permanent collections from coast-to-coast, as well as internationally. He currently resides in Eugene, Oregon, with his wife, where he is active in the local creative community.
